Baden-Württemberg: Tübingen in economy mode: street lighting is switched off

Tübingen (dpa / lsw) - In order to save energy, Tübingen's Mayor Boris Palmer wants to switch off the street lighting in his city at certain times. From the coming weeks, the street lamps should always be turned off from Sunday night to Wednesday night between 1 a.m. and 5 a.m., as the city announced on Wednesday. Underpasses and tunnels are to be further illuminated. The police and the regulatory office should be more present in the dark nights. On the three "nights out" Thursday, Friday and Saturday, the lights should only be switched off between 3 a.m. and 5 a.m.

Actually, the plan in Tübingen is not to completely darken the inner city area at night, but only to reduce the lighting. According to the city, this can only be done if there is a separate control for it. The components required for this can only be delivered in several weeks. "The temporary complete shutdown for four hours a day, four nights a week is a compromise that we are making to save energy immediately," said Palmer, who recently ran as an independent for the mayor election. His membership in the Greens is currently suspended.

Tübingen is not the first city to turn off the lights to save electricity. Other municipalities in the southwest have already switched to this because of the energy crisis.
