Why should we save electricity?

"The relative availability of public goods, including electricity, creates many people have the misconception that these benefits appear to themselves and that never exhaust themselves."

Why save electricity

"Why save if each one of them is always in sufficient quantity and at an affordable price? But this idea of being able to quickly lead to negative consequences, because the main resources used for the production of energy is not renewable. The lack of a reasonable approach to the use of energy will lead to the fact that it will become less available and more expensive.


To avoid this, many countries have been for a long time, the development and implementation of strategies for the improvement of the efficiency of energy use. In Russia, the claimed leakage of electricity produced in the fuel and energy complex (because of the low efficiency of the installations) and industry (mainly due to wear of equipment) and in real estate. A significant amount of the energy losses in the public services is the cause of the neglect of the saving of heat and electricity from consumers, that's us.To the Federal energy saving programme started to operate in the area of the nation, first you have to start educating us.

What each one of us to help conserve the natural treasures? In fact, methods to increase the rational use of energy resources, there are many, but we can start with the easiest.

If each one of us at least once a day to think about what you need to turn the lights off in the room where it is burning for nothing, or pull the cord from the wall outlet that the electrical devices, which is a long time in the standby mode, or in time to turn off the electric oven and prepare dinner in the residual heat, we are going to make a significant contribution to energy savings in the region. Often, we must follow the common visual resources "before leaving, turn off the light!" or "take care of the light!" in public places and the lights are off in areas and completely forget about these Golden rules in your own home. Don't you find it strange?


Few people know that one-hundred-and 75-watt bulbs, free running, per hour "eat" a few kilos of coal or oil, at the same time polluting the environment with harmful substances.

The steps that the energy savings it is very easy to replace old bulbs with new, energy-saving, which will reduce the cost of energy, several times. With the aim of increasing the energy efficiency from the beginning of the year 2011 in our country there is a ban on the sale of incandescent lamps of 100 w on 1 January 2013 - from 75 watts. In addition, from 1 January 2014 will ban the sale of incandescent lamps of 25 watts.

Replace not only lamps but also the energy efficiency of the equipment significantly save electricity, and consequently, the cost of the same. However, in order that the effect of these measures was remarkable, you need to install energy-saving light bulbs not only in households, but also in the hallways, the basement, at the local level, that is to say, in the common areas.

By the way!

High quality light bulb energy saving type, can work up to 12,000 hours, which is equivalent to about 2 - 3 years of intensive use.

For rational of the electricity law provided for the laying of the installation (and replacement of obsolete) the whole house and the inside of the apartment as the electricity. The right and the legal power and energy consumption using electricity meters gives consumers significant savings and allows you to plan your expenses based on the testimony of these devices. You need to remember that the electricity in the common areas will never be free, it is not necessary to postpone the solution of this problem indefinitely. Much better to take control of the system of energy consumption around the house: in order to avoid unnecessarily burning light stairwells, basements and other public areas of the house; for the prohibition of the use of electricity for purposes not associated with the maintenance of the common spaces of the house; if possible, install a sensor switch sensitive to the presence of a person in a common room, etc.


November 11 - international day of energy saving, on this day events designed to inform people about how energy efficiency and existing renewable energy sources, to explain why it is important to save energy.
