TIPS FROM ESKOM ON HOW TO CON­SERVE ELEC­TRIC­ITY

CityPress - - News -

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.
