Learn How to Save Power to Reduce Costly Energy Bills
Before you learn how to save power around the house, it’s important to understand the state of the energy marketplace in Australia today. According to the New South Wales Government, there are 7.6 million households in Australia, 2.7 million households in New South Wales, and over 1.5 million households in the Sydney metropolitan area alone.
In the state of New South Wales, power plants have to burn coal to produce electricity in order to keep up with customer supply for homes and businesses. Yet up to 70% of the energy released from burning coal fuel is lost as heat waste throughout the cycle of generation, transmission, and energy distribution.
On top of that, the average household in New South Wales will consume roughly 7300 kWh of electricity per year, creating 160,000 black balloons of carbon pollution. In one year alone, this will average out to 3.7 tonnes of black coal used to power the average NSW household. More than 10 million tonnes of coal are burned annually to supply electricity to the state.
Clearly, it pays in more ways than one to learn how to save power. You can reduce cost electricity bills and benefit the environment by using the following tips at home today:
- Raise your air conditioner thermostat by one degree in warmer weather to conserve energy with a potential savings every year.
- Turn off large appliances like televisions, DVD players, and stereos at the wall to save some money on your bill.
- Use energy-saving light bulbs that consume up to 80% less electricity to save a potential sum of money per year after changing 10 light bulbs in the house.
