The campaign – ‘Rationalise Electricity… and Save Money For Your Kids’ aims to promote rational consumption of electricity, and safety in its use, by people in rural areas.
Officials from the Rural Electricity Company will residents of areas in Musandam, Dhofar and Al Wusta, and explain the production of electricity, the cost of production including subsidies involved, and the benefits for users and the nation of rational use.
Discussing the campaign, Hamad bin Salim al Magdheri said: “The campaign will include the rationalisation in the use of electricity and safety from the risks, by focusing on adaption and how to maintain equipment,”
He continued: “We’re delighted with the success of the first campaign, especially as they came in order to spread awareness of the need for rationalisation in the consumption of electricity.”
