TIPS FROM ESKOM ON HOW TO CONSERVE ELECTRICITY
Do not leave electronic devices and appliances on standby – they consume the electricity you could have used for something else.
If you’re going to leave your lights on all day, you will pay more for electricity.
A cellphone charger left plugged in uses 50% of the electricity you could have used to actually charge your phone later.
Adjust settings on your fridge and save.
Monitor usage – the light on your electricity usage prepaid meter flickers faster or slower depending on usage. It gives an indication of how many appliances are on.
Use electricity sparingly; the more you use, the more you will pay.
You will be penalised for using too much electricity, so you might not get the same units for the same amount of money every time you buy electricity.
