For businesses, you should proactively convert to green energy, use equipment and machinery that consume less energy, use electricity during off-peak hours…
For households, the amount of electricity used by customers not only depends on the characteristics and usage time of the device, but is also influenced by the external environment, architecture, and space in which electricity is used. , characteristics of electrical equipment, user habits… These factors also have a great impact on power consumption, so you should set the air conditioner temperature from 26 to 27 degrees Celsius combined With fan to save electricity.
