Appeals to reduce gas consumption

If natural gas supplies are disrupted, public appeals will be made to consumers to reduce their consumption. These will first be made by the government, then the gas industry will send detailed information directly to its customers and the public.

As it is not feasible to ensure that the approx. 290,000 users of small and medium-sized gas systems are complying with the request to reduce consumption, even with random sampling, this measure can only be implemented in the form of voluntary appeals and not by ordinance.
