Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki announced in mid-September that “public administration, including local government administration, each institution will have to limit energy consumption.”

Energy-efficient outdoor and street lighting is our next big step – a solution that we have developed together with many local governments and that will serve Poles and save energy.. This street lighting, outdoor lighting, we want it to be modernized in such a way that it consumes less energy. (…) We will start such a program all over Poland. We will prepare adequate support for local governments to start the implementation of this program as soon as possible this winter, which will probably last several quarters – Morawiecki informed at the time.
