As you would have probably read somewhere, Energy Efficiency is the best source of sustainable energy, far superior than solar energy, wind energy or any other sustainable energy source.
The reason is obvious – what better than using something without wasting than generating more of it, whatever be the source!
While many people – both from the residential and commercial/industrial sectors – fret about the poor payback periods for many renewable and sustainable energy investments, I can tell you that investing in energy efficiency provides you with some very attractive paybacks – in many cases a year or less. That is, you can recover the money you have invested from the savings within a year of installation. Now, that’s something, isn’t it?
While it might have been a bit of challenge earlier to identify energy efficiency equipments for all sorts of appliances, that is no longer the case any more.
With Energy Star and its equivalents available in many parts of the world today, purchasing energy efficient home appliances is far easier today than it was earlier.
So, the next time you wish to purchase a new electrical equipment, make sure you purchase the one that is energy efficient and carries a certification/proof for this.
