“Buy candles and firewood for fireplaces.” In Switzerland, a power shortage warning

If someone thinks that information about possible problems with electricity or heat supply in winter in Europe is an exaggeration, he or she may wait long hours of sitting in the dark without heating. – This winter we should make sure we have enough candles and wood for the fireplace if we have a fireplace – said Laurianne Altwegg, vice-president of the Federal Energy Office in Switzerland, quoted by “Republic“.

However, she emphasized that power shortages are not certain, but it is better to be ready for them. In addition, Switzerland encourages residents to save energy. As we read, it is also considered limiting the operation of ski lifts and snow cannons in the mountains.
