Today, on the shortest day in the year, our country celebrates the day of energy workers on 22 December. This date was not occasionally chosen. December 22, 1920 began with the regular All-Russian Congress of Soviets, the main issue of which was a question about the electrification of the country. The final document of the Congress has become a well-known GOERLO plan, which has become a powerful impetus to the development of not only energy industry, but also the entire economy of Russia. It is with this Congress begins the story of Power Engineers' Day.
Power Engineers' Day – it is one of the brightest in the literal sense of the word holidays of the year. It is difficult to overstate the importance of energy in our lives, because it affects the viability of all branches of economy and comfort, warmth and light in the homes of many people. Power Engineers' Day – a celebration of the people who devoted his life to the creation and maintenance of the country's energy sector, for whom the word "heat" and "light" is an epoch.
