LCD monitor saves 50 % more electricity than a CRT monitor so use LCD monitor in office and in home
.If you switch off fridge for 2 hrs you can save electricity used for defrost
.Use electronic chock instead of common chocks
.Dont use zero watt bulb it actually consumes 10 watts
.when you switch off TV , VCR or DVD player using the remote then also there is power loses so unplug this equipment when not in use
.Don"t keep on your computer and other PC equipments on while there are not in use
.Walls in your house which get considerable natural light should be painted in lighter/pastel shades to reflect light. This way, artificial lighting won't be needed during the day.
Check the working condition of your equipments (mostly A/C and Water Heater) once in year
.Don"t try to use complained equipments
.Buy efficient electric appliances. Before buying an equipment check that it is product a symbol of energy saver
.Set the monitor to automatically shut off or switch to standby ...more

Be vigilant for electricity wastage. Use CFL bulbs as far as possible. Try to live with nature. Use minimum Air conditioner and room heaters.
