Save Power:-

Domestic Consumers

  • Power is precious - use it judiciously
  • One unit saved = Two units generated
  • Switch off lights, fans and other electrical gadgets when not required
  • Sunlight is available free of cost. Make maximum use of daylight and reduce the use of artificial light
  • Keep the bulbs and tubes clean to get better light
  • Use low wattage bulbs for corridors and other less important areas
  • Use light-coloured paints and distempers for interiors
  • Use tube lights in place of filament lights. They last longer, consume less power and give you more light
  • Do not keep the door of your refrigerator open unnecessarily
  • Reduce the height of partition walls wherever possible
  • Eschew the use of ornamental and festoon lights
  • Use cords of suitable capacity to avoid loss of energy and to reduce fire accidents due to short circuits
  • Use air-conditioners and climate control equipment very sparingly
  • Keep the motors clean and cool
  • Use capacitors near motor terminals to avoid damage to motors and to reduce demand charges.


Rural Consumer:-

  • Use foot valves of low resistance to save upto 10% power
  • Use RPVC suction pipes to save upto 10% power
  • Motor and pump should be at same level. Pump should be within 3 meters from the water level
  • Use pump sets of suitable power depending upon water lifting requirements. It could save upto 25% power
  • The capacity of motor should match the requirements. Using motors of higher capacity, where a lower one is good enough, results in loss of power. Use only motors of good efficiency
  • The pipe in which water comes out should be as close to earth level as possible
  • Use capacitors near motor terminals to avoid damage to motors and to reduce demand charges.


Industrial Consumers:-

  • Keep the motors clean and cool
  • Use capacitors near motor terminals to avoid damage to motors and to reduce demand charges
  • Tighten belts and pulleys at regular intervals to avoid energy losses due to drag
  • The capacity of motor should match the requirements. Using motors of higher capacity, where a lower one is good enough results in loss of power. Use only motors of good efficiency
  • Use grease frequently at all required points in the motor and motor drives to reduce friction
  • The machine driven should be very close to the motor
  • Sunlight is available free of cost. Make maximum use of daylight and reduce use of artificial light
  • Change worn out bearings and repair them in time
