Tata Power believes in the importance of conserving energy for better tomorrow. If we all take a few simple steps to reduce our energy consumption, we can go a long way in securing our futures.
A few simple steps and we can avoid power cuts. But before we list out those steps, just ask yourself, "Am I willing to do my bit for the future of our great city?" I think we all know the answer.
Let's avoid adding to the power demand during this peak time. By simply using some of our common electrical appliances before and after this time band. Washing machines, geysers, irons, building water pumps - all can be shifted without much inconvenience.
ACs are possibly the biggest cause of any summer power crisis. Every time one more AC is switched on and every time the temperature is lowered by one more degree, a huge load is added to the system. We can however work towards uninterrupted power - if we give up 'freezing' for 'cool enough'. Let's all go 26 this summer - it's actually quite comfortable.
Whenever we leave a plug point 'ON' after switching an electrical appliance 'OFF' with the remote, power is still being consumed in 'stand-by mode'. And no small amount either - these little wastages account for an unbelievable 5% of the city's power consumption. You will agree that's a sheer waste. So, after usage, let's switch off our ACs, TVs, washing machines, microwaves, geysers and mobile chargers from the plug point. Every single time.
It is up to each one of us to make the change - if you will, Mumbai will!
By following these simple hints one can save energy to a large extent. Issued in public interest by Tata Power.
