Ensure that Your Refrigerator is full at all times
The refrigerator is the major consumer of electricity in the house. To save on the amount of electricity it consumes in a day, ensure that it is always full. An empty fridge spends much energy because of the air circulation. If you have not stocked your refrigerator, it might do your pocket good to put bottles of water in there until you go to the market.
There have been long and aggressive campaigns on the need to switch to energy saving bulbs. For a fraction of the energy you’d normally use on traditional bulbs, you can get a brighter and better lighting in your house. People normally shy away from energy savers because they are a little expensive as compared to the other bulbs. While you can get a traditional bulb for less than Ksh. 80, be prepared to part with not less than Ksh. 250 when it comes to energy savers. If you are prepared to make that initial investment though, you will never have a sad face when openning your Kenya Power and Lighting Company bill.
