    Paris, September 24th Starting from the 23rd, including Many landmarks in Paris, including the Eiffel Tower, have stopped their decorative lighting at night ahead of schedule. In response to the energy crisis, France’s energy-saving plan has made the bustling “Night Paris” a lot darker.

    According to the energy-saving plan announced by the Paris municipal government not long ago, starting from the 23rd, the Eiffel Tower will be turned off from 1:00 the previous day to 23:45. Some other landmarks in Paris, such as the City Hall, the Tower of Saint-Jacques, some museums and all district government offices, all turned off their lights earlier, that is, from 10 pm onwards, the decorative lighting on the exterior was turned off.

Before the reporter came to the Paris City Hall, he saw that the external lighting here was also turned off.

    According to the “Parisian” report, Paris Mayor Hidalgo announced on the 13th that in response to the energy crisis, the Paris municipal government launched an emergency energy-saving plan, aiming to achieve the French President Macron’s 10% energy saving target. In addition to the early lights out of landmark buildings in Paris, high-profile measures include the planned winter indoor temperature reduction in municipal buildings and the early end of the “Christmas Lights” ceremony on the Champs-Elysees.
