Within the framework of the festival’s start, power engineers organized the “Energy Saving Lesson” in the children’s camp “Children of Berendeevka”. The specialists of the branch “Rosseti Centre Kostromaenergo” told the campers about the types of energy, modern energy-saving technologies, and gave recommendations on the economical use of household appliances and electrical appliances in everyday life.
In the near future, the power engineers will organize large-scale thematic events of the festival #TogetherBrighter-2019 as part of a city holiday for the whole family, as well as the “Energy First Grader Day” and “Open Doors Day”, which Kostromaenergo traditionally organizes on the eve of 1 September. In addition, in the first weeks of the new school year, they will conduct about 10 classes on energy efficiency in schools and higher educational institutions of the region.
The All-Russian Festival of Energy Saving and Ecology #TogetherBrighter has been held with the support of the Ministry of Energy of Russia, the Ministry of Education of Russia, the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of Russia, the Federal Agency for Youth Affairs (Rosmolodezh), the Russian schoolchildren movement, and the State Corporation “Housing and Public Utilities Reform Support Fund” since 2016. The festival is aimed at creating a culture of energy conservation, educating the younger generation of respect for energy and the environment.
Kostromaenergo regularly holds events aimed at popularizing energy conservation among both workers and consumers. Annually, power engineers conduct about 100 lessons on energy conservation and electrical safety in educational institutions of the Kostroma region. More than 20 such classes were held during the summer holidays.
