Energy Conscious Dominican Republic – “Turn off the lights!”

Santo Domingo’s Presidency Administrative Minister Jose Ramon Peralta has ordered Presidential Palace employees to comply with seven rules in order to contribute to saving electricity and becoming more energy efficient.

The rules include turning off lights, air conditioners, computers, printers, photocopiers and other equipment at lunchtime.

In addition, air conditioners should be only used on low, light bulbs replaced with low-consumption ones, and all electrical equipment turned off at the end of the working day.
