WITH temperatures dropping, Kashmiris have geared up for yet another spell of cold. As we prepare to enter a full blown season of low temperatures, we are stocking up everything especially gadgets and electronics to keep oneself warm. Many of these heating gadgets are not energy efficient and often create a lot of pressure on the power department as well.
Therefore, it is important for us to use energy efficient alternatives. Additionally, we must also check reckless use of these appliances. For instance, we must regulate the number of geysers we use. Perhaps, we can only use one and ensure that we switch it off well in time.
We can also be careful about the use of electric blankets and switch them off before going to bed. This will not only save electricity but is also a safe use of such appliances.
These are just some common uses that can be regulated ethically. We must keep our eyes open and ensure a judicious use of all such resources.
