Money Saving Tips
Every home is a complex energy system - from hot water and air conditioning, to cooking, lighting, heating, refrigeration and entertainment.
Energy management - the efficient use of energy - is often the result (or a part) of sound energy conservation practices. But conservation alone does not always reflect good energy management, especially where electricity is concerned.
Because alternating current (AC) electricity can’t be stored, the time when it is used becomes important. For example, using electricity during off-peak hours does not conserve electricity, but is a wise management of this energy resource.
