ELECTRI Sales have been servicing PMB in the electrical industry for over 20 years. Over the past two years they have expanded into alternate energy sources as well.

Being the experienced business that they are, they can assist with solar installations, wholesale electrical sales and customized panel building. When it comes to becoming energy efficient, Electri Sales can advise you on how best to go about this, including breaking down your installation projects to suit your budget as some initial expenses might be high, but in the long run you save.

By changing over to liquid petroleum gas (LPG) appliances like your stove and your geyser can instantly save you R200 or more a month. Once your geyser or stove have been safely installed, you can approach the PMB municipality, if you reside in their area, complete their forms and pay their call out fee to get them to change you over to a lower ampere supply circuit breaker. Most households have 60 ampere circuit breakers, but by using gas, you can get that lowered to a 40 ampere circuit breaker and depending on if you change over to gas for heating etc, maybe even as low as a 20 ampere circuit breaker. It is important to remember that LP gas is an instant form of heating.

Things you can do to save electricity

Use efficient lighting

Replace incandescent bulbs with compact fluorescents (CFLs) or the latest technology is LED lighting. These use less energy and are designed to last longer.

Use sunlight energy

Photovoltaic cells (solar panels) is an alternate energy source that Electri-Sales can assist with.

Use an energy efficient computer

Buy a laptop instead of a desktop. It consumes five times less electricity. If you buy a desktop, get an LCD screen. Enable the power management function on your computer, the screen saver does not save energy. Check if your computer supports the more advanced speedstep power management. Switching off a computer extends its lifetime, contrary to some misconceptions.

Industrial application

Make use of installed power factor correction units to eliminate losses in your electrical network. Electri-Sales can assist in this manner. “Any further assistance, please contact Electri-Sales at 033-3865005 or email us on admin1@electrisales.co.za”

How much food do you need to concentrate?

We have been taught that we need three meals a day in order to make it through the day and while most of us indulge in more than our fair share there is a large portion of South Africans who are living off barely enough to sustain them.
