To save electricity, CFE has presented a list of tips that help the population to move towards an efficient use of electricity. This service is essential for daily life and for the operation of any company and, given the reality of an industrialized world facing climate change and global warming, it is becoming increasingly necessary to promote responsible consumption of electricity, both in homes as well as in industries and large national and transnational companies.
Saving electricity is a daily commitment. Working together in a change of mentality that generates significant advances in saving electricity not only has a positive impact on the environment, but also represents a great benefit in the family economy and helps reduce the costs of electricity bills. light on companies and industries that carry out efficient and innovative actions and measures to reduce the excessive use of electricity in their facilities.
In order to achieve significant progress at the national level in saving electricity, CFE, the subsidiary production company of the Mexican State that generates and markets electricity in the country, promotes energy saving through energy efficiency. Efficiency in the use of energy is something that any person or company can achieve, since it involves the implementation of actions and mechanisms that contribute to using a smaller amount of electrical energy to carry out the same activities that have always been needed in home or for the operation of a business or industry. Through it, it is even possible to carry out even more activities without increasing the use of electrical energy or the cost of the electricity bill.
As part of the promotion of saving electricity, CFE has proposed that companies carry out a gradual but consistent change of mentality, through which it is possible to improve light consumption habits. In addition, the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) proposes that these changes be made in combination with the use of more efficient technologies.
For this, there are solutions such as the storage systems of Quartux, a leading company in electricity and electricity saving, which works with the highest technology in the design and installation of its battery system, which has positioned itself as a great option to save energy in national and foreign companies operating in the country. A model that makes the electricity bill much cheaper, while saving electricity.
One of the tips to save energy from CFE is to take into account the levels of light consumption and start saving electricity with changes in daily habits. Below are the savings tips that CFE recommends to reduce the cost of electricity in Mexican homes.
According to CFE, the best way to save light and energy in electrical devices, such as television, is to turn them off and unplug them when they are not being used. This recommendation may seem very simple, but it is an action that is rarely carried out and that could mean a great benefit for the environment, in addition to a reduction in the cost of electricity bills.
The same is recommended with computers or laptops, since by keeping them turned off when they are not necessary to use them, an excessive consumption of electrical energy will be avoided. Also, if the computers are connected to a regulator, it is ideal to turn them off at the end of the day. In addition, CFE advises reducing the number of open applications and lowering the brightness of the screen.
To save electricity, CFE suggests that, as soon as a cell phone, tablet or laptop is 100% charged, it should be disconnected. It also recommends lowering the brightness of your screens and keeping them in cool places, away from direct sunlight. Also, when possible, turn them off or use the saving option, as well as suspend GPS, Bluetooth and WiFi.
As for video games, for CFE energy saving will be achieved by placing it in a space where it is well ventilated, activating the energy saving option and disconnecting the console when not in use. It also recommends that if users want to watch internet videos, they use a tablet or laptop, since a video game console consumes 10 times more energy.
To help the population learn more about how to save light, CFE highlights the importance of replacing incandescent bulbs with LED bulbs or energy-saving bulbs. CFE points out that energy-saving bulbs have the ability to illuminate with the same intensity as incandescent bulbs, but with the great advantage of contributing to caring for the environment, since they consume 75% less energy.
The Federal Electricity Commission also asks the population to check that there are no electrical leaks in the home and to buy electrical appliances with an energy saving certificate. Being appliances that cannot be disconnected, it is important to buy energy-saving refrigerators, CFE recommends to check when buying a refrigerator that it has an energy efficiency label, that is, with the seal of the Energy Saving Trust. Electric Energy (or FIDE seal), through which the certainty that they contribute to the saving of electric energy is provided.
There are two types of FIDE seal to take into account when purchasing an electronic device: FIDE "A" is obtained by electronic or electrical equipment that uses electricity efficiently and whose operation is directly used by users. This is the case of saving lamps and refrigerators, among others.
As for the FIDE “B” seal, this is awarded to equipment or materials that do not save electricity by themselves, but whose application or installation can create favorable conditions for saving electricity. Thermal insulators and domes, for example, fall into this category.
To promote energy savings, CFE recommends moving refrigerators away from heat sources such as sunlight or the kitchen stove, as well as locating them at least 10 centimeters from the wall, to prevent them from getting hot and help them maintain good ventilation. According to the instructions of the Federal Electricity Commission, it is important to keep them clean inside and out, adjust the temperature in numbers 2 and 3, and change them between 3 and 4 in the hottest seasons.
As for microwave ovens to save electricity, CFE recommends not opening them until the food has finished cooking. He also points out that it is necessary to clean them frequently and put the food in refractories specially designed to be used in these devices.
The Energy Savings Program for the Electricity Sector (PAESE) is a project through which the CFE promotes the energy saving culture, both in its facilities, as well as for the population in general, its clients, its subsidiary production companies and its subsidiary companies. With this energy saving program, CFE provides advice that promotes the benefit of users, the environment and the reduction of polluting emissions produced by fossil fuels.
Through this program to promote energy efficiency and saving electricity, CFE seeks to influence educational strategies that encourage Mexicans to replicate the best practices in the use of electricity. Its strategy ranges from personal habits to the use of better technologies and consists of free activities, such as a robotic theater with interactive scenarios where household appliances provide children and young people with energy saving tips.
In addition, informative talks are given on light and energy saving and group dynamics are held where the relevance of energy saving is explained. In them, awareness is generated about the damage that energy consumption has caused to the environment with didactic material and talks aimed at the general public.
It is common for the offices and facilities of companies and industries to use the same devices that are also found in homes, such as computers, coffee makers and microwave ovens, which, even when turned off, continue to consume electricity. In a company there are also other devices, such as printers, copiers, modems and routers. To encourage energy saving, CFE also promotes that these be kept disconnected when not in use and that they be turned off at the end of the working day, in addition to suspending them or putting them in standby mode during breaks or meals.
Another action to promote light and energy savings is to gradually move to a greater use of portable computers or laptops, since these consume a much lower amount of energy than desktop computers. In addition, electricity can also be saved by replacing incandescent lamps with energy-saving lamps, which must be left off when all personnel have left the office or work area.
However, to make light saving more efficient and reduce energy consumption costs, it is not enough just to carry out these tips, such as activating the energy saving mode of electronic devices or using as much natural lighting as possible. may be possible.
Although these measures are an excellent first step and signify the beginning of a great commitment, to these individual and collective efforts to save electricity must be added a change in energy saving throughout the company, through a high-quality solution. technology like the one that Quartux offers its clients through its storage systems.
The solution provided by the Quartux team through its innovative battery system effectively reduces the costs generated during CFE's peak hours, since it is during CFE's peak hours when electricity is more expensive. This problem is one of the factors that increase electricity costs for companies and industries, and electricity storage has become the ideal solution to reduce costs and make the use of electrical energy much more efficient.
To do this, Quartux uses software with artificial intelligence that stores electricity through a battery system, which operates according to the specific energy needs of each client, to generate electricity savings on their CFE bill of up to 40 %, while improving the quality of your power and avoiding problems like blackouts, so the flow of work is not interrupted.
The Quartux storage system is based on the design and installation of the most suitable lithium-ion batteries for each case, which is reviewed in detail to diagnose the needs of each client with the aim of achieving greater energy savings. light and energy management efficiently within the hours in which the cost of electricity is cheaper.
It is a win-win for companies and for the environment. In addition, the Quartux system can be monitored by customers through a personalized control panel where they have access to all the information about their energy parameters, the operation of the storage system and their electricity savings.
When companies commit to making changes in their electricity consumption and start saving electricity, they obtain multiple benefits that also have a positive impact on the impact of man's footprint on nature and the effects of serious problems such as global warming. . Among the great benefits that companies and industries obtain with saving electricity, are:
● Reduced production costs
● Promoting technological innovation
● Promotion of socially responsible companies
● Increased competitiveness and productivity
● Reduction of carbon dioxide emissions (CO2)
