I got this from the news, as advice to save electricity this summer. 1. First is the consciousness to turn off lights and appliances that are not being used, not to forget to unplug the appliances because some appliances consume electricity even when turned off (an example is the digibox of the cable tv). 2. Limit your ironing of the clothes to twice a week, better if once a week, and unplug the flat iron when there are only 2 clothes left to iron. 3. When the air conditioner is not running, open windows to get more ventilation. 4. Defrost the refrigerator at least once a month. A frosted refrigerator wastes electricity. 5. Adjust the brightness of your tv – the brighter, the more power it needs.
