Spain links energy savings to rising crime

Spain links energy savings to rising crime

Law enforcement agencies in Spain and politicians believe that saving electricity at night will lead to an increase in crime.

On Monday, the Spanish government approved an energy saving plan. The country has changed the rules for the use of air conditioners in public places, you can not lower the temperature below 27 degrees, and heating will not exceed 19 degrees. Also, after 22.00 local time, you need to turn off the lights in the shop windows.

“It is easier for criminals to commit crimes,” experts say.


Fines for violating government measures range from 60,000 to 600,000 euros.
