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 Consumers:

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.
