    Save electricity by follow small habits.

    We all know how complex the process of electricity generation is, there has been a time when many houses had no electricity and had to work with candles or lamps. Today, almost many villages also have electricity facilities, which is a signal of progress. But it is often seen that electricity is wasted in people's homes in the city as well. Now the time of summer has come and by nature, the expected power consumption is going to be higher, in such a situation, we should also contribute to saving electricity by taking care of small things. For example, if there is no need, turn off the switch when the laptop is fully charged, charge the mobile-only when the battery is running low because some people habitually switch to mobile charging repeatedly. Before leaving the room, definitely switch off the fan, many such small habits will prove beneficial in many ways.

    It is said that one unit of electricity saved is one and half unit produced. I remember in our school days when we got the electricity connection in our house it was considered as a very valuable entity (still it is so) and we cared for it much and if we move from a room to other then putting the switch off was the first thing we remembered and invariably did. If someone forgot to do that then all the family members will cry and remind the defaulter. Today the situation is quite changed and people are not very particular about that and those who can afford think that how does it matter if the electric bill is there for Rs 2800 in place of Rs 2300. So the mindset of many people is like that and especially many rich people do not bother for these small things. But if we see from a national perspective if everyone is concerned for this small contribution from ones side then cumulatively we can save a lot of electrical energy which can be diverted to some needy industry or household. Saving electricity is a very good habit and we must consider it wherever feasible.

    Electricity saving is obligatory on every consumer but some people don't care about it because they have enough money to bill. I appreciate the author for reminding us our duty. Saving power is our duty. Electricity should not be wasted. If we are careless about power energy our children will also be careless. We don't get twenty four hours power supply because we don't produce so much power but if we use power wisely and don't waste it a large amount of power energy may be saved and this saved energy may be used by many of us. We should spread this message to other people also.

    Electricity has become a very important commodity for all of us. We should use the same in a correct way only. we should not waste money. You may be having more money with you but the availability is limited. If you waste it we may not get the same when there is an absolute necessity.
    Many people put on the fans and lights and never put them off even though they are not required. One should always make the habit of putting off all the electric appliances when they are not required. The importance of any time will be known only when it is not available to you.

    Electricity is an essential part of our life be it home or otherwise. However, we have seen many wasting the same without bothering that that they should put it off if going out side.It hardly matters for them if the billing goes beyond Rs 3000/- per month though there could have been saving to the extent of Rs 800/- by way of taking some precautions. Saving to that extent is just
    like some peanuts and as such they avoid such attempts. They forget that such savings could result in more electrification in some of dwelling units which are struggling to get this privilege.

    It is very true. These are just some of the habits that parents may have taught since childhood. Our parents taught us to turn off the fan and /Bulb when no one was inside. But do parents now have time to teach their children this way? Do they teach such things? The answer is no.

    When the fan and Bulb-light are on, do they turn off when you leave the room for drinking water or any other necessary things else? No. The answer to that is: " I am coming back there now itself? Then why turn off the fan and the light?" Isn't this reaction is an example of how everyone is not ready to fulfill their responsibility? If it takes 5 minutes for the drinking water to come out and it continues a minimum of 6 times per day, it means that both devices worked for half an hour (5 minutes X 6 times per day=30 minutes) without any use. Add 60 watts of fan and 40 watts of light equals 100 watts-hour. It loses one and a half units of power every half hour for 30 days - without any use.
    So it is a lesson that everyone should remember and teach their children.

    Saving electricity is must and the author has reminded every one with some tips. In some homes I have seen fans also running in the Airconditioned rooms and the electricity charges can be reduced. Likewise the bathroom geyser is always put in on and the water heater is used in some homes to have heat water. Instead of florescent power saving bulbs of just nine watts. That means on one tube light one can save 31 units of watts and one can imagine how much can be saved. Likewise the old bulbs of 40 or 60 watts consume more electricity and many villages are still using the old bulbs culture.

    In village limits also we find that street lamps are not put off during the day. We should also take note of the chargers hanging on to the sockets drawing a minute amount of electricity. We should make out routine scheduled as such we utilise the sunlight during the day to complete most of the kitchen works. Save power for future generations.

    Nice posting as well indirect alert by the author. Whether we afford to pay the Electricity bill or not, total current savings can be done by our part to the society. Many of us do not switched off the fans and lights when not in use. We should have the habit of switching off the unused lights and fans whenever we move out of our rooms. We should also train our children in house and schools to follow this,
    Besides the savings out of this follow-up, some mishaps can be avoided. A neighbor of our earlier house was a bank employee and her husband was a government employee. Their son was in other State on employment. This lady used to keep the plug point of the Mixie in the kitchen in the socket itself and off the switch only in the board and not in the mixie. One day she did cooking and went to bank as usually. A lizard went over the switch of the mixie connected socket, the mixie start functioning. By hearing the mixie running sound, the people residing in the ground floor of the house, thought that the lady would not have gone to bank on that day. But after some hours the mixie overheated and burst out and kitchen start got firing. By hearing this noice the ground floor people immediately called the fire service and phoned to the couple. This is small matter but leads to a great loss.

    I also feel that electricity consumption should be minimised. It's usually seen that where there are ample of resources their importance is reduced and in most of the rich houses same thing happens. Nowadays with a rise in income and modernisation people see having several electrical appliances as a status symbol and in a zeal to outshow each other we didn't care for electricity bills but this thing impacts our environment to a great extent. Per day electricity consumption of the nation is uncontrolled. With advent if solar technology this can be reduced but still due to huge setup costs this technology can't be adopted nationwide. Try to save electricity not for you but for your future generations as we have not inherited these resources from our forefathers but have borrowed them from future generations.
