As the Lantern Festival draws near, the districts of Laiwu and Gangcheng in Jinan, Shandong province, prepare to illuminate the night skies with the brilliance of traditional lantern displays, whose smooth and safe operation is supported by the local power grid.

Lanterns, steeped in cultural significance and symbolizing prosperity, reunion and joy, hold a special place in Chinese festivities. To safeguard the cherished traditions, State Grid Laiwu Power Supply Co steps into the spotlight, ensuring that the temporary electrical connections powering these luminous marvels are secure and reliable.

As lanterns of all shapes and sizes grace the thoroughfares, the power supply team has remained vigilant, conducting round-the-clock inspections of electrical lines to preempt any potential hazards. All so citizens can revel in the glow of the lanterns, free from concerns about electrical safety.

Ensuring the safety and reliability of these dazzling spectacles is no small feat. Behind the scenes, a dedicated team from the company coordinates with local authorities and event organizers, organizes the routing of power lines and formulates comprehensive on-site power supply plans.

Moreover, the power supplier's safety services extend beyond lantern displays. With nearly 1,000 employees on standby, they monitor the power grid's operation, adjusting with precision to accommodate the heightened electricity demand of the Chinese New Year celebrations, State Grid Laiwu Power Supply Co said.

Through intensified efforts, Laiwu aims not only to illuminate its streets, but also the spirit of the Lunar New Year, ensuring that local people and tourists can usher in the new year with warmth, brightness and peace of mind, said the local power supplier.
