   Power Saving Tips
Save Electricity
Lighting
  • Switch off lights and fans when not required.
  • Replace bulbs with tube lights & CFL(Compact Flourescent Lamps).
  • Utilise natural light by using electronic chokes & regulators.
  • Optimise use of lights in malls, multiplexes & hotels.
  • Turn off the lights when not in use.
  • Take advantage of daylight by using light-coloured, loose-weave curtains on your windows to allow daylight to penetrate the room. Also, decorate with lighter colours that reflect daylight.
  • De-dust lighting fixtures to maintain illumination.
  • Use task lighting; instead of brightly lighting an entire room, focus the light where you need it.
  • Compact fluorescent bulbs are four times more energy efficient than incandescent bulbs and provide the same lighting.
  • Use electronic chokes in place of conventional copper chokes.


Electric iron
  • Select iron boxes with automatic temperature cutoff.
  • Use appropriate regulator position for ironing.
  • Do not put more water on clothes while ironing.
  • Do not iron wet clothes.


Fans
  • Replace conventional regulators with electronic regulators for ceiling fans.
  • Install exhaust fans at a higher elevation than ceiling fans.


Refrigerator
  • Do not open door frequently.
  • Set thermostat in medium cooling position.
  • Keep adequate space from wall.
  • Do not overload the refrigerator.
  • Defrost your refrigerator regularly.
  • Regularly defrost manual-defrost refrigerators and freezers; frost buildup increases the amount of energy needed to keep the motor running.
  • Leave enough space between your refrigerator and the walls so that air can easily circulate around the refrigerator.
  • Don't keep your refrigerator or freezer too cold.
  • Make sure your refrigerator door seals are airtight.
  • Cover liquids and wrap foods stored in the refrigerator. Uncovered foods release moisture and make the compressor work harder.
  • Do not open the doors of the refrigerators frequently.
  • Don't leave the fridge door open for longer than necessary, as cold air will escape.
  • Use smaller cabinets for storing frequently used items.
  • Avoid putting hot or warm food straight into the fridg


Washing Machine
  • Use after 10 PM or before 10 AM.
  • Run washing machine only with full load.
  • Use the shortest cycle time.
  • Always wash only with full loads.
  • Use optimal quantity of water.
  • Use timer facility to save energy.
  • Use the correct amount of detergent.
  • Use hot water only for very dirty clothes.
  • Always use cold water in the rinse cycle.
  • Prefer natural drying over electric dryers.


Geyser
  • Use before 10 AM.
  • Switch off when not required.
  • Reduce thermostat setting from 60 to 50 C.
  • Use Solar Water Heater - a good replacement for a electric water heater.


Microwave Ovens
  • Consumes 50 % less energy than conventional electric / gas stoves.
  • Do not bake large food items.
  • Unless you're baking breads or pastries, you may not even need to preheat.
  • Don't open the oven door too often to check food condition as each opening leads to a temperature drop of 25 C.


Electric Stove
  • Turn off electric stoves several minutes before the specified cooking time.
  • Use flat-bottomed pans that make full contact with the cooking coil.
