Thailand : Govt House's temperature raised
Govt House's temperature raised
February 20, 2013
Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra today ordered the adjustment in Government House's air-condioning temperature, to set an example for all government units.
The temperature is raised from 23 degree celcius to 25. The temperature is usually kept as low as 20 degree celcius when the Government House hosts a reception.
The move followed the Cabinetís resolution on February 19 to have all government units cut down their electricity consumption, ahead of a possible electricity shortage in April.
The government will also launch the energy-saving campaign at the Government House on April 5.

When you cut back on nat gas, you gotta cut back. In Houston we use about 20,000 MW's. A rise in temp of 2 degrees F equals another 500 MW of demand during peak load in the summer.
