Are you annoyed with your super-high electric bills? Wouldn't it be nice to save truckloads of money by saving energy? Pay close attention and take the following steps immediately, as they will help you in significantly reducing your electricity costs by thousands.

1. The first easy and convenient way, starts with your own room/house. All those appliances, which run on electricity, should always be turned off, when not in use. It is best advisable to unplug them, as these appliances consume energy, even when they are plugged in and not in use. This not only helps save energy, but also can avoid unfortunate events of house fire.

2. Unplugging electrical appliances when not in use does help in electricity saving; but one should not forget that other forms of electricity such as light bulbs or halogen should also be switched off as they also consume tons of electricity. The other alternative can be, to use more of natural solar light from the sun by rearranging your rooms accordingly.

3. The energy saving devices available on the market such as compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFC) are a good alternative source in reducing your electricity bill. This light will provide you with almost the same brightness and will reduce your electricity cost considerably.

4. There are several short-term and long-term benefits, you can get out of using the power saving gadgets. One of them is that it will analyze the electricity consumption you require.

A wise use of all electrical appliances you have will help to cut down on total electricity / energy consumption. Here are more tips you can use immediately. Washing machine with full load of clothes should ALWAYS be used. Run the geyser on minimal. It is better to activate the time setting in your air-conditioner as this will enable automatic shutdown on a specified time. During a break, your computer should always be put on standby or sleep mode. It is always better to shut it down when not in use for a longer period. Convert to wind (windmill) and solar power permanently via the do-it-yourself kits that are available online.
