Environment Through Electricity

Introduction
  • Are you someone who is concerned about the
    environment but find yourself feeling helpless at
    what you can do to save it? It is true that mere
    campaigning and sloganeering is not enough to
    save the environment.
  • You have to take concrete steps to ensure that
    the environment is healthy and safe for future
    generations.
  • It might seem like an uphill task and even
    overwhelming at times if you think you need to
    make grand gestures to do this. But this is not
    true. You can save the environment through slow
    and steady steps taken on a daily basis every day
    in the comfort of your home!
  • All you have to do is keep an eye on how you use
    electricity day in and day out. Save electricity
    and you can save the environment too in the long
    run!

Connection Between Electricity and The Environment
  • You must be wondering what is the connection
    between electricity and the environment? The
    connection is simple.
  • Today, the major amount of electricity in the
    country is still being generated through
    non-renewable energy sources, such as oil, gas,
    coal, etc.
  • Until we can fully convert the generation of
    electricity from these sources to renewable
    sources of energy, like solar power, wind power,
    etc., a lot of fuel from non-renewable sources is
    needed for the generation of electricity.
  • This use of fossil fuels for the generation of
    electricity leads to rapidly depleting resources,
    which has an impact on the carbon emissions,
    leading to depletion of the ozone layer, leading
    to global warming.

Connection Between Electricity and The Environment
  • It also has an impact on the economy as the
    dependence on fossil fuels lead to greater costs
    for these fuels.
  • All of these problems can be handled and managed
    if everyone takes care to use electricity wisely
    and smartly.
  • Saving how much electricity we consume can also
    help bring down pollution by reducing the
    emissions that power plants emit. This goes for
    both air pollution and water pollution due to the
    emissions from power plants that generate
    electricity.
  • As dependence on fossil fuels for electricity
    generation reduces, there will be greater
    protection of the habitat of animals and their
    eco-systems, leading to a healthier world for
    all.

Simple Steps to Take to Save Electricity Today
  • A good amount of electricity can be saved by
    judicious use of it in the kitchen. For example,
    heating food on the electric stove costs you at
    least 40 more electricity than reheating it the
    microwave oven. Also, using the smaller burners
    consumes less energy than the bigger ones.
  • Most people leave their computers on all the
    time, even when they are not in use. By just
    remembering to shut down computers before you
    leave the home or go to sleep at night can save a
    lot of electricity.
  • Charging cellphones is another area that people
    often overlook. Most people keep their cellphones
    plugged in long after it is fully charged. Taking
    care of this can bring down your electricity
    bills.

  • Your washing machine is another place you can
    save electricity. Hot water washes consume a lot
    of electricity, so consider using cold water in

    clothes getting clean as all you have to do is
    get a good detergent to make up for the hot water
    effect.
  • Your thermostat is another place you need to look
    into to save electricity. Increase the
    temperature in summer and lower it in winter to
    save a good amount of electricity.

    to check into the insulation in your home is also
    a good place to start saving electricity as
    cracks or gaps in this can lead to a lot of heat

    winter and summer due to increased use of heaters
    or air conditioners. This can be prevented by
    redoing or repairing your insulation to make sure
    it is in good shape. This is best done by
