XUZHOU, China, Feb. 18, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — “Cables and lamps must be connected tightly, otherwise they will be hot due to poor contact, which will lead to fire accidents….” On February 5, the State Grid held a power protection mobilization meeting in Yaowan Ancient Town Scenic Spot, Xuzhou, Jiangsu Province, to prepare for the upcoming Spring Festival Lamp Festival. “Every year, the popularity of the Lamp Festival is very strong, which is my ninth year to participate in the layout of the lamp show, and I am very honored.” said by Wu Xiaodong, an employee of STATE GRID XUZHOU POWER SUPPLY COMPANY.

Yaowan Ancient Town is located in Xuzhou City, Jiangsu Province, at the intersection of the Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal and Luoma Lake, which has a history of 1400+ years. Near the Spring Festival, the annual ancient town lamp festival is about to open grandly. The local power supply company accurately connects with the Management Office of the Scenic Spot, and arranges staff to come to the exhibition site of the lamp festival in advance to investigate the site, lay wires, install switches and debug power transmission.
