Bursary Description

  • Lights: Turn off lights in rooms that are not occupied. If you leave the room, turn off the light
  • Electronics: Power down computers, monitors, and printers when you’re not using them. Many devices have sleep or hibernate modes that use less energy when idle.
  • Kitchen Appliances: Turn off the stove, oven, microwave, and other kitchen appliances when you’re not using them. Appliances with digital displays can use electricity when not in use.
  • Air Conditioning: When you leave a room, turn off the air conditioner. Air conditioning should not be used during load shedding.
  • Printers: Turn off printers when you’re not actively printing. Many printers consume a significant amount of power, even when they’re in standby mode.

Make it a habit to turn off devices and appliances when they’re not in use. It’s an achievable goal that reduces electricity usage, and it starts with us. Let’s power the change!
