Except for the cement factories, others were asked not to use electricity from the main power plant on the eve
Addis Ababa: September 10, 2013 (WIC) – Other industries other than cement factories and export industries were asked not to use electricity from the main power plant on the eve of the festival.
The Ethiopian Electric Service (EES) has completed the preparations for the event to reduce power outages on the eve and the day of the event.
However, to reduce the risk of power fluctuations during the winter, other industries other than cement factories and export industries have been asked to reduce the pressure on the main power plant by not using electricity from the main power plant on New Year’s Eve, September 5 from 12 noon to 4 pm.
The institute also urged customers to ensure that home appliances are energy efficient and safe.
According to information obtained from the Ethiopian Electric Service, the power supply also helps to reduce power outages during non-load hours, especially between 4pm and 11am.
Ethiopia sends first round seedlings to Eritrea
Addis Ababa: August 30, 2014 (WIC) – The first round of seedlings promised by Ethiopia to neighboring countries has been sent to Eritrea, according to the Technical Committee of the Green Imprint Program.
At the national level, it is planned to plant 6 billion seedlings this summer.
Technical Committee Coordinator, Dr. Adefris Worku, told ENA that the implementation of the plan is well underway.
He said the information gathered from the Environment, Forest and Climate Change Commission, the Ministry of Water, Irrigation and Energy and others, including state reports, is a good sign.
He said the plan did not go as planned in areas of instability in the country, adding that Tigray, Amhara and Afar areas were lagging behind in the implementation of the green footprint.
Elsewhere, however, reports indicate that seedlings grown at the nursery have been transplanted properly.
On the other hand, he said the 1 billion sapling project that Ethiopia has promised to give to neighboring countries is progressing well.
Dr. Adefris said there are countries that are accepting the idea, adding that extensive discussions are underway with the countries through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Ambassadors.
He said some countries are providing information on the number of seedlings and their planting time through the Ethiopian consulates.
