The Sanya government has turned off all public landscape lights in an effort to ease grid pressure as electricity consumption throughout the city continues to rise in the recent high-temperature days.

In order to ensure the stable operation of the power grid, the Sanya government has carried out a plan to avoid peak-hour electricity use in the city. About 120,000 street lights as well as landscape lights in some public places, which are not in critical need of landscape lighting, have been turned off.

During the sweltering summer, the electricity consumption in Sanya is far beyond its load-bearing capacity. As of now, the largest power consumption reached 477,340 kilowatts, 5.6% higher than that of the same period of last year. The figure will continue to reach 510,000 kilowatts, the expected maximum capacity for this year

The local government has also called for the public to increase their energy-saving efforts by turning off their nonessential electric devices
