CARBON TAX HINTS FOR SAVING POWER

CARBON TAX HINTS FOR SAVING POWER

1    TAKE REGULAR READINGS OF YOUR ELECTRICITY METER, SAY WEEKLY.
YOU CANNOT ARGUE WITHOUT FIGURES.

2    TURN OFF ALL STANDBY SYSTEMS NOT BEING USED.

3    SWITCH OFF UNNECESSARY LIGHTS.

4    WHEREVER POSSIBLE TURN OFF HOT WATER SYSTEMS FOR PERIODS,
WHEN NOT NEEDED.

5    KEEP A CHECK LIST OF SUPERMARKET PRICES. I NOTE WHEN THERE
SPECIALS, THERE ARE USUALLY RISES OF A FEW CENTS ON OTHER
PRODUCTS.

6    RESTAURANTS FOR THE OCCASIONAL DINING OUT WILL UP PRICES.
I NOTE SOME ARE ALREADY CLOSING. ONE LOCAL OWNER INFORMED
ME OF THE COST OF KEEPING DEEP FREEZERS AND REFRIDGERATORS
RUNNING, WHICH CANNOT BE TURNED OFF.

7    SWITCH OFF FRIDGES IN GARAGES WHEN NOT NEEDED.

8    OUTSIDE APPROACH LIGHTS SHOULD BE USED JUDICIOUSLY AS THEY
USE CONSIDERABLE POWER.

9    AIR CONDITIONERS AND HEATERS SHOULD BE USED WISELY AND ONLY
USED WHEN NECESSARY.

THESE  ARE SOME HINTS THAT SHOULD MONEY ON YOUR POWER BILL.
