Mr. Awal Boye, who is the Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) has advised consumers of electricity to use home appliances wisely during the yuletide.
“This is the time that most families get visitors and children are also home so you’d realize that most of the appliances might be used at the same time. Please we should make it a point that appliances that not in use should be switched off and use only one at a time,” he said on Kastle FM.
He said to the host Amansan Krakye “Maybe the TV might be on, at the same time the radio, air conditioner, ceiling or stand fan might also be on. We’ll plead that we should take notice of such and only use what we might need at a particular point in time.
Speaking on Kastle Drive with Amansan Krakye, Mr. Awal Boye advised that when buying an electronic appliance, the number of stars on it should be checked in order to ensure energy efficiency.
“When buying electrical appliances check the number of stars on it to be sure of the energy efficiency. So we would advise that when buying these home appliances, remember that the more the stars indicated on the gadget shows that it is of high energy efficiency or it consumes less electricity,” he concluded.
