The electricity ministry started to consider using solar energy for lighting advertisements on streets instead of depending on the traditional electricity power.

For his part, Electricity Minister Mohamed Shaker said that this matter would be applied firstly on the ads spread in the Greater Cairo governorates that represent 40% out of the ads countywide.

On the other hand, Shaker said that the national grid is able to meet the needs of consumers in summer, referring to the limited resources that require rationalization by citizens to overcome such a crisis.

He also said that Egypt has seven million air conditioners, thus if we can use only half of them in the peak hours, we would make the state save 2,000 megawatts.

On the other hand, Shaker stated that strict procedures are currently being considered against the citizens who did not pay accumulated electricity bills.
