Tips to Save Electricity During Hot Weather: Advice from KSEB

As temperatures soar, the Kerala State Electricity Board (KSEB) has issued essential tips to help residents combat rising electricity bills and alleviate strain on the power grid. With complaints of fuses blowing and voltage reduction becoming more common, KSEB emphasizes the importance of conserving energy during peak hours.

The surge in electricity consumption, particularly from air conditioners and electric vehicle charging, has led to unprecedented strain on the power distribution system. To address this, KSEB recommends several strategies:

Optimize Air Conditioner Usage: While it may be necessary to use ACs during hot nights, maintaining temperatures at 25 degrees Celsius or higher can significantly reduce energy consumption.

Limit Appliance Use: Refrain from using high-energy appliances such as washing machines, iron boxes, and pump sets during peak hours, especially between 6 pm and 12 am.

Use ACs Selectively: Limit AC usage to essential rooms and avoid cooling unused spaces. Additionally, turning off ACs when not needed can lead to substantial energy savings.

Efficient Lighting: Turn off lights when not in use and consider using energy-efficient LED bulbs to reduce electricity consumption.

Optimize Water Pumping: Schedule water pumping activities during the day to avoid overloading the power grid during peak hours. Avoid using automatic water-filling systems during the night.

Avoid Nighttime Cooking: Minimize electricity usage for cooking during nighttime hours to alleviate strain on the power distribution network.

By implementing these energy-saving practices, residents can not only reduce their electricity bills but also contribute to the efficient and sustainable use of energy resources
