The Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) is inviting people to join the hybrid ‘Mae Moh Festival 2021’ both individually and virtually on Tuesday.

Interested people can join the festival in Lampang or view a 360-degree virtual festival via the website http://maemoh-festival.egat.co.th/.

 

The festival has been kicked off on Friday last week to show the development of the smart city, which was declared one of five smart cities in Thailand by the Subcommittee on Driving and Managing Smart City Projects, as an important natural attraction in the province.

EGAT Governor Boonyanit Wongrukmit said the authority has cooperated with government agencies and communities in the area to develop Mae Moh district to be a smart city despite the Mae Moh Mine and Power Plant will be decommissioned in 2051.

He said the development is being conducted under three guidelines: 

  • Smart Energy: Using renewable energy instead of coals.
  • Smart Environment: Setting up a reforestation learning centre to capture carbon dioxide.
  • Smart Economy: supporting local product development and promoting the smart city to be a tourist attraction.
