DTI urges public: Observe energy saving measures

DAGUPAN CITY (PIA) – As power consumption increases during the warmer season, the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) in Pangasinan encourages the public to observe energy saving measures and help mitigate the effects of high-energy usage in global warming.

Natalia Dalaten, provincial director of DTI-Pangasinan, said consumers and business owners in the province were advised to take actions that reduce energy consumption and help promote renewable energy for a sustainable, just and inclusive energy system.

“Consumers and business owners play a crucial role in accelerating the transition to clean energy by making informed choices and taking actions that reduce energy consumptions,” Dalaten said.

In order to help the public reduce energy consumption, Dalaten said DTI has listed the following tips that the public can to do to help reduce power usage in homes and workplaces:

·        Choose and use only appliances that are compliant to energy efficiency standards.

·        Electrical appliances including lights shall always be unplugged and turned off when not in use.

·        Bulbs and fluorescent lamps shall be regularly cleaned to provide maximum illumination.

·        Venetian blinds should also be drawn open to take advantage of natural sources of light.

·        Use insulation for roofs to reduce use of air conditioning units or air coolers.

·        Consider installing rooftop solar panels.

·        Use sunlight to dry clothes instead of using a machine dryer.

·        Recycle water used from washing clothes and dishes.

 “We are all consumers of energy services, and as consumers we have the potential to take action that will accelerate the transition of clean energy. With all of us working together, we can make it happen,” Dalaten said.
