Monitoring wastage of electricity

We should save electricity to ensure that it is used properly in the service of humanity. The wastage of power should be monitored and stopped at the earliest. If we are careless about this point, there will be regular and prolonged load-shedding. If we keep the lights on during daytime, we will be constrained to be in darkness at night. We need electricity at every moment and in every walk of life. Electricity is considered the soul or the life without which the entire world remains dead and dark.

Some useful tips are mentioned below to help in achieving this goal.

Since we are blessed to have enough solar energy in our country, there is no need to use the clothes dryer as it has been mainly produced for European countries where they have cloudy weather. Also, the dryers consume a large amount of energy. Also, using the washing machine at maximum capacity decreases the amount of times that you need to switch it on. Remember, not all laundry needs to be washed in hot, or even warm water. Separate loads and be selective about which fabrics get to be washed in heated water. Washing in cold will reduce energy needed to heat the water.

Boiling water in a kettle or covered pan will help in making the boiling process faster while using less energy.

Did you know that the energy efficiency for LED lamp is estimated to be around 80-90 LM/w which is very high compared to Incandescent lamp’s energy efficiency that is estimated to be 12-14 LM/w.

Also, today’s LED bulbs can be six-seven times more energy efficient than conventional incandescent lights and cut energy use by more than 80 percent. Not to mention that good-quality LED bulbs can have a useful life of 25,000 hours or more, meaning they can last more than 25 times longer than traditional light bulbs. That is a life of more than three years if run 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Being aware of your actions is an easy step, so act now and reconsider your decisions for a better future.
