We humans are inevitably dependent on Energy consumption for leading our lives. We require and use Energy in various forms such as electricity, oil, gas, coal, wood, wind, solar and nuclear energy and other forms of energy as well. Our lives revolve around the use of Energy. As the research statistics reveal, The World Energy Consumption is on the rise. The past decade has witnessed a marked increased in the world energy consumption levels. This means that on an average per person energy usage has increased.
Another aspect to this energy consumption is the unnecessary wastage of these vital and precious resources. Every passing hour witnesses several kilowatts of Energy being wasted uselessly. And it will not be an over statement to say that we can easily save this Energy from getting wasted. One thing is very clear and that is Energy is precious and it takes a lot of resources to make them functional. Another truth is some of these Energy sources such as oil, coal, gas, wood are natural and are fast getting depleted. So it becomes of prime importance to use the Energy resources a little more intelligently.
Why we should Save Energy?
The answer to this vital question has two interconnected parts. One part deals with the fact that Energy Saved is equivalent to Energy produced. In this part we put forward various ways by which we can easily save quite a big amount spend on Energy. And the second part focuses on the financial aspect of Energy Saving. As you save on energy usage or rather avoid energy wastage, you simultaneously save on the monthly expenditures that you are doing on the overall Energy consumed by you. Here we will discuss both of these aspects linked to why we should save energy.
If we look around our lives it would not be difficult for us to discover the areas where we can easily safe energy. Though the level of Energy usage varies from person to person and there is nothing wrong in it but certainly one must inculcate habits related to avoiding energy wastage. We should make it a point to switch off the lights, fans and ACs and any other electrical appliances when we leave our room or go out of our houses. We can even try to use energy efficient electrical and electronics equipment’s. Driving at optimum speeds and shutting down our two and four wheelers at traffic signals is also one of the healthy Energy saving habits. Keeping our vehicles in good condition also helps to saving a good amount of fuel. You can even find new and unique ways to avoid wasting up of energy. Doing all these little things can save on our Energy consumption by almost 25% per month. And if we count this on a global level this amounts to a huge value of Energy.
Secondly, it is clear that if we are successful in saving the energy usage or controlling the wasting of energy, we can automatically reduce our unnecessary expenses that we make month on month. The money saved here can be used for other purposes or simply can be saved for some upcoming event such as buying of gadgets, for a holiday vacation with your family, buying apparels, etc. As an example, suppose your monthly expenditure on overall Energy Consumption comes to say $500.00. By following certain energy saving tips, let’s say you are able to save $50.00 per month. On a yearly basis, this amounts to $600.00 which is good enough to get you the latest iPhone. So it is really nice and fruitful to Save Energy.
Thus we see that saving Energy is the need of the hour. Whatever energy we save can be used and distributed to other people who are facing shortage of Energy supply. The Saved Energy can be used in variety of other ways too. By saving on energy consumption we also save the wastage of our financial resources. So we should try to find out ways in which we can Save Energy. Each individual effort will make a difference. A start is needed in this direction. So by Saving Energy we are in a way creating a better tomorrow for ourselves.
