How would you like to not paying your electricity bill?
That is possible. No, it is not about any upcoming election-time pledge by a particular political party either. It is about the revolutionary new technologies that are now commercially available in India.
We all know that there is a certain amount of expenditure that needs to be incurred in order to maintain our hvac system. There are many factors involved in calculating the electricity bill and its varying rates. If we are living in a cold place, then we would obviously require more electricity to maintain the HVAC system. If the place where you stay is high altitude and there is little sunshine, then you would have to make use of more solar energy. This means that more power is required and the bills are higher as well.
calculate our electrical requirements
Now the latest technology has allowed us to calculate our electrical requirements beforehand. The power consumption per unit of area or square feet is now also calculated with our present consumption. This makes sure that we do not go overboard with our electrical usage and we do not become a ‘super-consumer’. In other words, you do not end up spending more than what you can afford. With the help of the installed solar panels, you can reduce your electric bill even when you stay in a well insulated and cool place.
The latest device is the portable electric meter reader. This device is designed to be carried anywhere and is attached to the meter reader by way of a USB cable. The meter reader is a special device that calculates the electricity consumption. Once you plug in the device into an outlet, the reading on the screen will indicate how much energy you have consumed.
choose to use cheaper and more efficient appliances
Your best bet to save money on your electricity bill is to get an effective electricity plan and stick to it. If you make some changes to your plan, you can easily save money. For instance, you can switch to using standby generators when there is a breakdown in the main grid. You can also choose to use cheaper and more efficient appliances such as those that only run for a few minutes at a time.
It is advisable to keep your electrical appliances to a minimum. In other words, avoid using full-scale refrigerators, washing machines, ceiling fans, and dryers. Use only those appliances that consume less than half of your total square feet. A smaller household requires fewer electrical appliances and hence, fewer kilowatt hours or kw.
