By being electrically efficient you will reduce the amount of power you use; reduce the need for electrically operated cooling or heating; and of course save money. With the cost of electricity likely to rise due to increasing resource costs, carbon trading and alternative energy requirements there is no time like the present to start saving. If enough people start saving electricity then new infrastructure costs in transmission distribution and extra power stations can be avoided. If national electricity consumption went down instead of up, this could lead to turning off the worst polluting power stations sooner. An auxiliary benefit of being electrically efficient is reduced CO2 emissions and water consumption at conventional coal and gas thermal power stations which is an added bonus for the environment. You should consider first becoming electrically efficient and then look at alternative energy sources as it is cheaper to implement electrical efficiencies. Audit what you have, measure your consumption and then work out a strategy. Start with the free best practices and then work out which others will give you a good return on your investment. The whole eBook is over 50 pages. This book is best used in an electronic format so that the hyperlinks and anchors work for you.

Thank you for your interest in Energy Efficiency.
