ENERGY CONSERVATION TIPS
  • See BEE Star Label before buying Tube Lights/Ceiling Fans/Refrigerator/Air Conditioner and other electric appliances-More Star More Savings.
  • Use LED and CFL(Compact Fluorescent Lamps) instead of ordinary bulbs. It saves approximately 75% energy and its life is 10 times of an ordinary bulb.
  • Use BEE Star labeled T5 Tube Lights instead of ordinary tube Lights. You can save energy up to 30%.
  • Dirty Tube Lights and Bulbs reflect less light and can absorb 50% of the light; dust your tube Lights and Lamps Regularly.
  • Use Electronic choke instead of normal Electromagnetic Choke. It saves electricity up to 20-25%.
  • One of the most energy saving devices is the light switch. Turn off lights when not required.
  • One will use 3 to 5 percent less energy for each degree air conditioner is set above 22 degree centigrade , so set the thermostat of room air conditioner at 25 degree centigrade to provide the most comfort at the least cost.
  • Setting computers, monitors and copies to sleep- mode when not in use helps cut energy costs by approximately 40%.Use high efficient BEE star labeled agricultural pump motors. Ensure regular maintenance and proper suction & delivery of water.

In the past, strength of electric bulb was measured in watts which measures the power. This isn't useful unit of measurement for new energy saving light bulbs which produce higher light at lower watts. Higher the lumens, the brighter the light.
