Conserving the environment is a socially very responsible thing to do. While we sit here, in our town homes, with ACs and Fans continuously switched on, there are villages,scores of villages where people have no electricity and water, or even a normal bulb..

Recently I had gone to Gujarat on a trip, and I discovered one village where they had 24 hours power and water. And they used it in phases to conserve it. It was brilliant. Apparently the Gujarat Government innovated to get them 24 hours of supply of power and water, and its the only village in India to have that. And they were using Power saver bulbs!! I found a case study on them online - check it out .

Yes.All the power produced at plants must be used at once.Because power cannot be stored at distribution levels much.So,if there will be less use of power less power will be produced.

But yes we use only energy saver CFLs.We even converted nearby street lights into CFLs from halogen ones.Even changed to energy saver models of appliances.

Only when the high buildings and large companies did to save electricity in decoration at night and days we would truly benefit from over strained power consumption at particular places.
