The Japanese Government「Please save electricity from 1st December」

According to News Web Easy, the Japanese government is asking to save electricity by reducing the usage of electricity at houses and at offices from 1st December till 31st of March. This is because there is major concern about possible shortage of electricity from now on when weather is getting too cold. Due to Russian attack over Ukraine the government concerns that there might be getting difficult to import oil to make electricity.

The government is asking to wear a lot of warm clothes and reduce the temperature of heating, switching off lights of rooms that are not in use and PC. Because they have not decided yet how much to reduce electricity so just asking nation to save electricity as much as possible.

It was 7 years ago when the government asked nation to save electricity.

My thought

The war is creating serious problem here in UK as well. I have just put the heating on for just one hour morning and night. We do not know how much bill is knocking our door. I have no idea about other countries but here UK the bill has gone up triple. It used to be 1000 pounds and now 3000 pounds a year. We got the government help but it is meaningless as the price have gone up dramatically, having said that it is better than nothing and I am still grateful to it.
