Energy Conservation


TP Southern Odisha Distribution Limited (TPSODL) believes in the importance of conserving energy for a better tomorrow. If we all take a few simple steps to reduce our energy consumption, we can go a long way in securing our futures. Here are a few electricity saving tips for your home.


How to Save Electricity at home?

Electricity Saving Tips on Lighting
  • An easy way to save energy is to cut down on unnecessary lighting. Please "Turn off" all lights when not in use.
  • Replace ordinary bulbs with LED bulbs as these save about 90% electricity for same lighting levels.
  • Dirty tube lights and bulbs can absorb 50 percent of the light; clean your tube lights and lamps regularly.
  • Focus lights on your task instead of high wattage lamps for the entire room.
  • Use natural sunlight wherever possible.
  • Purchase 5-star BEE certified appliances.
  • Seal windows and doors properly before turning on AC. Set the temperature of AC at 25 °C for good comfort and save electricity.
  • Do not keep hot food items in the fridge and also minimize the opening of the fridge door.
  • Use energy efficient motors and pump sets for lifting water.
  • TVs and other electronic items continue to consume power when switched OFF from remote. Thus, make sure that these items are switched OFF from the source.
  • Reducing temperature of water heater from 60 °C to 50 °C will help in saving 18 percent of the energy used at the higher setting.
