Utility expenses make up a major chunk of the household budget. Electricity bills in India, especially, can eat up your monthly income. At Bharat Smart Services, we understand how stressful getting a high electricity bill can be. That is why we founded a one-of-its-kind AI-powered meter reader app. Keeping track of the meter lets you control future consumption and keeps your bills down.
Apart from tracking electricity bill at home, there are simple yet effective ways in which you can conserve energy regularly. As the Green Ambassadors, we urge you to consume energy wisely.
1. Develop good electricity habits
Saving electricity is a good habit, that every individual must be continuously aware of. These habits can go a long way in cutting back your electricity bills. You need to follow these habits not only at home but also in your office, business house and industries.
- Switch off all the equipment, like fans, lights, bulbs, etc., when you leave a room
- Encourage ventilation indoors, so there is less humidity inside the room. It will promote less use of electricity
- You may cumulate clothes for a few days and then wash them in a washing machine, rather than putting small loads daily
2. Make your building energy efficient
Be it your home or workplace, LEDs can be a great choice as they can help you save up to 80% of electricity consumption in comparison to other lights and bulbs. Also, as far as possible, stress on 5-star appliances as they are more energy-efficient. They might cost you a little extra, but they will save your hard-earned money in the long run.
3. Switch to solar energy
The electricity bill also comprises a fixed charge. The fixed charge earlier was ₹100, which has now increased toInvesting in solar energy-powered appliances can be a prudent step. Solar energy is one of the best alternatives to electricity since it is renewable. With almost 300 days of bright Sun throughout the year, the Indian weather conditions are apt for making the most of this clean and green way of energy consumption. Bearing this one-time cost can cut back on your electricity bills for a long time. The Indian government offers subsidies when you opt to install solar panels.
4. Keep a check on the energy-hungry appliances
In almost every home, office or factory, there are certain high-energy-consuming appliances such as AC, fridges, heaters, microwaves, water submersibles, etc. Keeping a check on them can help you cut back on the bills. Using them as per your needs, along with regular cleaning and servicing, can help you make the most of them.
5. Do an energy audit
Another important cost-cutting opportunity is doing an energy audit. An accurate audit can help you find easy ways to reduce energy consumption. You will also be made aware if there are any leaks that are causing a high electricity bill.
