There is a crisis of power generation,in my country of residence to meet current demand and government has gone on a massive campaign for energy saving ,many came up with some very ambigous ideas but i will like people from mylot to give me some ideas on how i can save energy and at least cut power consumption by 20- 30%

power - electricity
I just can't imagine, second to the last month, we only consume 244kilowatts. Then next month to more than 300 watts and this month is more than 400 watts. and it is all because of sudden brownout or blackout. I have a small internet cafe and this is my electricity with of course some appliances because my shop is downstairs.

really!this is funny if you use the same equipments dont you think the total power consumed should remain constant?if you open at the same time and close atthe same time everyday why the fluctuation in the power consumed?i think there is a need for you to make a formal complaint

You know what? You give me a great idea, because i don't even wonder about that.And there's also one idea, since i am using a power saver and its time delay is damage, maybe we got only the true usage of our shop. We don't know really and i am going to Electric cooperative office to know more about this and maybe some tune up of my meter. Thanks by the way.

Turn off lights and computers to save money! Turn it off all night and when not being used.

i do that infact i only have the public security light on in the night and its because its a necessity,when the refrigerator ia completely frozen i do switch it off and it stays well frozen for about 2 days like that thus saving about 2 days of consumption and also we do our ironing once so that sometimes we dont need to use the electric iron for more than a week sometimes

We only turn down the refrigerator at night, but we do not turn it off! Sounds like you are doing a great job conserving energy! We do not use an iron very often at all!
