China energy police will enforce air-con rules

A group of energy-saving inspectors went to work in Beijing on Sunday to enforce limits on air-conditioner use, state media reported, as the government pushes to save power and clean up the capital's air pollution problem.
The 22 officials will check that offices, hotels and other big buildings in the capital are observing a demand to set air conditioning no cooler than 26 degrees Celsius, the Beijing News reported.
Citizens can also complain about buildings that fail to observe the rule on a special phone line, the paper said.
