In response to the energy crisis, the city of Zwickau wants to turn off the hot water in schools and daycare centers, among other places. "We are all called upon to face this difficult situation in order to make a contribution to overcoming the energy and gas crisis - public administrations as well as companies and private individuals," said building mayor Silvia Queck-Hänel (independent) on Tuesday according to the announcement.
This includes adjusting the hot water in the buildings of the city administration and subordinate facilities such as museums, schools and daycare centers.
"It will be parked where possible and permitted," said a city spokesman on Tuesday. This applies in particular to hand wash basins in toilets. According to the spokesman, the city wants to implement the measures in the short term and gradually.
In offices and lounges with air conditioning, it is also planned to set the room temperature to a maximum of 26 degrees. An exception applies to the control center of the fire brigade and the citizen service in the town hall. In corridors and stairwells, the lighting should be switched off or reduced during the day. The city is also checking whether it will continue to illuminate public buildings.
