Saving Energy during El Nino
It may be a result of the much talked about global warming but definitely it’s getting warmer in Singapore. The dreaded El Nino being experienced across Asia is causing undeniable havoc on economies. What’s at the root of this environmental phenomenon is the threat of the rise in electricity. If this is the case, there are plenty of things to do to save energy and not be a victim of soaring electric bills. Here are some practical ways to do so:
- Be Smart About Your Appliances. Unplug appliances that are not of use. You’d be surprised at the amount of money you can save simply by pulling the plug from that appliances you’re not using. What you thought is a resting appliance is actually wasting away energy when you don’t pull the plugs off.
- Make the right investments. Solar panels, LED bulbs, and the like may come off as expensive at first but they can help you save more in the long run. Imagine the savings you can get from simply relying on the power of the sun as compared to subscribing to paid electricity. Countries worldwide are challenged to turn green and developed countries like Singapore should take on the lead.
- Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. The simple act of reducing, reusing, and recycling can already contribute a lot to wise energy consumption and, on a bigger scale, to a green economy. What the world burns and buries away causing significant damage to Mother Nature comes mainly from private waste. Singaporeans know this well so it shouldn’t be difficult for us to take on the lead on this.
- Practice a Responsible Lifestyle. Being responsible means being aware and educated on the consequences of your actions. Support products and companies that help save energy consumption. Support movements that call out for a better way to provide energy.
