Overstrand Municipality appeals to visitors and residents to conserve electricity as best they can during the hot summer months.
By looking closely at how you use electricity, taking steps to save power where you can and by controlling the use of your appliances, it is actually easy to conserve energy.
Below are some saving tips that could help you:
- If you’re not using an appliance, switch it off
- Let’s all get into the habit of switching off the lights when we leave a room
- Don’t leave TVs, DVD players and other electrical equipment in stand-by mode – rather switch them off completely
- The same can be said for plug points and adaptors that hold cell phone chargers or bed side bulbs
