After days of unusually high temperatures, people in different parts of Sichuan province are complaining that they cannot make do without air-conditioners, which triggered a power supply restriction for industry.

To meet increasing public demand for power in the scorching summer heat, the Sichuan Economic and Information Department and the State Grid Sichuan Electric Power Co jointly issued an emergency notice on Monday to limit power consumption by enterprises.

The notice said that all industrial power users in the province's 19 cities and prefectures, excluding the city of Panzhihua and Liangshan Yi autonomous prefecture, will cease production and take high-temperature holidays for six days, from Monday to Saturday, to ensure power for the people.
