Solar Panels

Solar panels are one of the best ways to reduce the usage of fuel and worn-out parts. They are easy to be kept anywhere you can extract light from. You can power your home and offices for free, as the sun’s energy is converted into electricity. On a bright, sunny day approximately 1,000 watts of energy per square meter of the planet’s surface heat is given by the sun.

The Three Rs

Make a habit to reduce, reuse and recycle. This is an excellent and efficient way to preserve organic and inorganic resources. You can re-use papers, old furniture, your clothes, cardboard and so many other stuff. Try experimenting old thing and turn them into something new and use them in different way.


Use power strips

Buy power strips for your computers. These strips are wonders; they prevent energy from being consumed as power flows to printers and scanners even if computer is switched off. So, this way power is not consumed by electronics which are not in used at the moment.

What is the color of your roof?

It is a common observation that dark colors take in more heat than the light colors. We often invest a lot in air conditioner and fans to keep our places cool. They take in massive energy to work. Your roof should be off light colored tiles so it takes in less heat and keeps your place cool. You should prefer having roof with white tiles.

Charge your phone, but in cars

Charging up your phone in your car is a better idea rather than charging up at your place. While you are driving long distances, plug your phone into your car charger so power would be taken from your car. Avoid texting while driving so your phone charges up quickly.

The above are some ideas with which you can create and eco-friendly environment. These steps are easy and will reduce the consumption of energy plus reduction in your electricity bill. So, when do you plan to implement?
