Changing Working Hours Could Help Save Electricity

Changing working hours in state organizations during peak electricity demand hours in summer decreased power consumption by as much as 350 megawatts in 2017, an official in charge of Consumption Department in Iran Power Generation, Distribution and Transmission Company (Tavanir) said.
"Although the executive bodies had been obliged to reduce their consumption by 10%, most of them cut their average use only by 4%," Alireza Ahmadi-Yazdi was also quoted as saying by IRNA.
"The provinces whose average temperature exceeds 45 degrees centigrade in summer are allowed to change their official working hours," he said, noting that state-owned buildings constitute nearly 7% of total electricity use in Iran so the government plans to reduce consumption.
According to the official, the hour shifting scheme was administered in 11 provinces and staff started their job at 6:30 a.m. instead of 7:30 a.m. and left their office one hour earlier.
