Well i have few tips to save electricity : 1.Do not leave your television etc in standby mode. Devices can use up to 90% as much power in standby mode. 2.Off the fridge for sometimes during evening, it will not harm your food. 3.A great way to save electricity is to replace incandescent bulbs with energy saving light bulbs. 4.Be diligent about turning off lights when you are leaving the room. 5.Make your family, friends and relatives aware of this. Encourage them to save electricity. If you have any tips to share do add them. Lets get-together to save the world.

All of those are definitely good electricity saving techniques. Another good one is to unplug any devices that you're not using. Trust me, this saves a LOT of electricity, more than you would think it saves. Even if they're off, unplug them. My mother tried this and it lowered her electricity bill by quite a bit because items still use energy even when they're just plugged in but not up and running. :)
