Energy Conservation Tips

TP-Northern Odisha Distribution Limited (TPNODL) believes in the importance of conserving energy for better tomorrow. If we all take a few simple steps to reduce our energy consumption, we can go a long way in securing our futures.


An easy way to save energy is to cut down on unnecessary lighting. Please "Turn off" all lights when not in use.

Replace bulb with LED bulb or tube light as it save about 75% of electricity for same lighting levels.

Dirty tube lights and bulbs can absorb 50 percent of the light; clean your tube lights and lamps regularly.

Focus lights on your task instead of high wattage lamps for the entire room.

Use natural sunlight wherever possible.


Appliances like Air Conditioning (AC), Water Heater, Refrigerator, etc.

Purchase 5 star BEE certified appliances.

Seal windows and doors properly before turning on AC. Set the temperature of AC at 25C for good comfort and save electricity.

Do not keep hot food items in the fridge and also minimize the opening of the fridge door.

Use energy efficient motors and pump sets for lifting water.

TV and other Electronic items continue to consume power when switched OFF from remote. Thus, make sure that these items are switched OFF from the source.

Reducing temperature of water heater from 60 C to 50 C will help in saving 18 percent of the energy used at the higher setting.
