Lviv Organ Hall has responded to calls to save electricity. Therefore, until the end of this month, it will hold all its events with minimal power consumption.
Recently, due to massive missile strikes on critical infrastructure facilities in Lviv, power outages have occurred. Before the beginning of one of the concerts in Lviv Organ Hall, power outage occurred, so the entire symphony orchestra played half of the concert for the audience in complete darkness. They highlighted their scores with small lanterns.
Major Ukrainian retailers, carriers and communication operators cut electricity consumption to reduce the load on power infrastructure hit by russia’s massive shelling. They had not to do that, but decided to support the Ukrainians in such a “flash mob”. For example, Nova Poshta delivery service announced that it turned off all signs and needless lighting to avoid loading the grids during peak hours. Kyivstar mobile operator did the same. ALLO, COMFY and EpicentrK equipment sellers joined the campaign too.
Lviv is preparing for a difficult winter. Local authorities warn: if russian rockets hit electrical substations or thermal power plants, the city’s residents will be able to warm themselves only in locations with heating equipment that will be set up in the shelters. According to the City Hall, potentially there are 10,500 basements with heating in residential buildings in Lviv. By October 1, they should be equipped with potbelly stoves. There should also be stocks of firewood.
