(MENAFN) A French city has chosen to hand out winter jackets to students as there is going to be fewer heating in schools, local media mentioned in report.
Gabriel Daube, the mayor of Periers in Normandy, stated that public buildings are not going to be heated over 19 degrees Celsius (nearly 66.2 degrees Fahrenheit) as part of energy-saving actions.
He informed radio station France Bleue that “This is one of the measures that complements a whole series of measures to reduce the energy bill of the municipality.”
The mayor estimated the cost of jackets at around €6,000 (USD5,860) for an overall of 350 students. But the savings would pay off, Daube went further on, as he had set the target of saving an overall of 10 percent of energy prices, which would be estimated at around €20,000 (USD19,520).
In line with the mayor, the heaters at public buildings are going to be set at 19C. Furthermore, public lighting is to be totally shut down at 11 PM.
