PARIS, March 29th, 2012 - the recommendations of the law Grenelle continue everywhere in France to improve the energy performance in the country. The efforts encouraged by the government relate to indeed not only the households in particular, but also the companies or industries which are besides the large-scale consumers in this context. Thus, the State plans to force the offices and companies not to more light the lights after one hour up to six hours of the morning.
A project which does not go back to yesterday
The fact of reducing the consumption of energy results from several reports which concern degradation the climate and other elements of planet. In France, it is the law Grenelle II which since recently, recommends the improvement of the energy performance in order to reduce the impacts of the actions of the man on the environment.
Currently, the decision of the State concerning the extinction of the lights for the offices and trade will be published by decree. It is in fact only one step moreover to continue the efforts suggested by the ex-minister of Ecology Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet in December 2011.
A considerable saving in electricity
It is the newspaper the Parisian one which published the existence of the resolution of the government which will impose the extinction of the lights as from one hour and before six hours of the morning. This measurement would be applied as of on July 1st of this year and that relates to all lightings of interior which project outside, those of the frontages and windows…
The advantages will not go to one way, because the buildings concerned will see lowering their invoices of electricity, while the environment will not be more affected than now. Energy saving thus released would be with the height of the consumption of 260000 households per annum. Nevertheless, the president of the union of the trade of city, Claude Boulle hopes that other areas will be able to escape this rule. He also awaits State that the decree is temporarily not-applicable for the periods of festival as to Christmas for example.
