saving tips electricity

Tip 1. Purchase electrical appliances of 50 hertz (Hz). With a 50Hz refrigerator you save $ 105 per year at the 1-1-2020 rate.
When you need a new refrigerator (or washing machine), buy a 220 volt / 50 Hz model. It is possible that you pay a bit more purchasing  this ‘European’ model , but that difference quickly will be  compensated on the WEB bills by the reduced consumption of electricity. You should of course have a 220 volt connection available in the kitchen.
A large transformer has more losses than a small one. If you decide to buy an American model, do not choose the transformer larger than really necessary for the model fridge / washing machine. Unplug the power cord when you are not using the washing machine.
Tip2. Replace light bulbs and fluorescent tubes with LED lamps.
Replacing a 60 watt incandescent bulb for outdoor lighting with an LED bulb with comparable light output gives a saving of almost $50 per year. Replacing a 36 watt fluorescent tube with a comparable LED lamp saves around $20 per year. This calculation applies with the WEB rates as of 1-1-2020.
