Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra on Saturday urged the public to have confidence in the government’s plans and measures to address the possible power supply crisis in April because of an expected disruption of natural gas supplied from Myanmar.

The premier, on her weekly TV programme “Yingluck Government Meets the People,” said that the government has urged the pubic to help save energy and is seeking additional power supply reserves to ease the impact of a possible power shortage on April 5. April 5 was expected to be a peak period for electricity usage and risked blackouts in some areas of Bangkok and in some parts of southern region, she said.

The government has asked for cooperation from state enterprises and government offices to save energy by reducing the usage of power and raising the temperature setting of air conditioners, said the premier.

She added that the government has also requested factories suspend their production on April 5 to reduce the burden on the power supply.

Ms Yingluck said she believed that after April 5, the country would enter the holiday festival of Songkran and the power usage would be reduced.

She said the government has prepared measures in response to the worst case scenario by reserving bunker oil and diesel full to run supplementary power plants.
