The inconvenience during the frequent power-cuts is being experienced by most of us. But have we ever tried to analyze the reason for this? Actually the production of power is lower than its consumption. The only way to come out of this situation is to conserve electrical energy. If all of us make efforts to save electricity, it shall make a great difference.
Switch off the fans and bulbs in the rooms which are not being used. Always turn off your A.C. when you are not in that room. Make sure your filters are clean. Try setting your thermostat to run less frequently.
Consider increasing your energy efficiency when buying appliances. Buy appliances with less energy usage. Turning off T.V.s, lamps, computers, VCRs, ovens and other appliances when no one is using them can reduce electric energy consumption. Wash and dry only full loads of clothes in your washing machine.
Saving electricity doesn’t just save money, it also saves the environment. The real key to preventing climate change is reducing energy use. Solar energy usage is a good alternative, as sun’s energy shall never diminish.
Switch off the computers when leaving the working place so that radiation can be beneficially reduced.
Consider using LED light bulbs (CFLs) as they use a lot less energy than fluorescent tubes. Keep the door closed while using the A.C. to prevent loss of energy. Shade windows during summer to keep sun off the glass.
Use fans for relief from hot weather. Fans cost much less to run than A.C.s.
Put the fridge in a well ventilated position and buy the size you need as extra capacity uses extra-power. Use dimmers as they save power and enable you to obtain pleasant changes of mood in your lighting.
Saving electricity may not make you rich, but it will help you cut down costs and prevent blackouts and power shortages in your community.
