few things-save energyOne simple and easy thing you can do is to just turn off the lights when you go out a room. Most of us likely temporarily leave the living room lights on when we run to the kitchen to get food because we think we are coming right back. If you do this for just a couple of times each day, it could add up to no less than 30 minutes of consumed electrical power.

While you squandering what could be thirty minutes of electricity each day may not appear like much, know that millions of other people are doing it too. If you combine it all up, one soul could be wasting at the least 182 hours of electrical energy per year. Let’s assume we squander approximately 182 hours of electricity each year and we multiply that by one million people. That’s 182 million hours of electricity wasted annually coming from a light that is left turned on in a single room.

Another wasteful habit that numerous people do is switch the lights on when entering a room. It’s something many people do without thinking. I catch myself doing it too. Nevertheless, there could be adequate light, maybe sunlight, coming into a room. And nonetheless, we come into a brightly lit room and flip the light switch to on. And in addition to that, because of the natural light getting in, we tend to forget we flipped the room light on in the first place and leave it on for the rest of the day. You simply have to make the extra effort to not turn the lights on if there is enough natural light coming inside.

When I come visit my mom, I have to remind her to switch the television off because she would leave it running even though she’s not watching. This is a great waste of electrical power. Thus, if you’re not in the room, turn off the television.

It simply takes a little effort on your part to remember these things, and when each person makes a little effort, it can add up to make a massive difference.
