Public urged to use power effectively despite sufficient power during the dry seasonPublic urged to use power effectively despite sufficient power during the dry season

electricity ThailandEnergy permanent secretary Areepong Phucha-um said today that despite gas supply cut from Myanmar due to the annual maintenance there would be sufficient power supply to meet with the expected 3 percent increase in power consumption during the month of April due to lower power fees.

EGAT deputy governor in charge of power transmission MrSuthonBoonprasong, meanwhile, said EGAT would increase the consumption of bunker oil to replace the shortfall of gas supply from Myanmar.

Also, EGAT will buy more power from the other producers and will increase electricity production from hydro power plants in Laos to replenish the power shortfall from gas-fuelled plants.

MrSuthon, however, appealed to the public to use power economically.

The government, meanwhile, will start a public campaign to urge consumers to use electricity effectively during the dry season when power consumption normally increases substantially.
