Electricity is the only way for many appliances and devices to work at home, so the cost of energy is very important for the domestic economy. With winter approaching, many of you are thinking about what to do to avoid an exorbitant bill, so at Nara Solar we would like to give you some tips on how to save on your electricity bill.


The first thing to bear in mind if you want to save on your electricity bill is to know how much power you have contracted. When we talk about contracted electrical power, we are referring to the unit that limits the number of appliances that can be connected to the mains at the same time without tripping the Power Control Switch (P.C.B.I.).

Another thing to bear in mind is whether the tariff we have contracted is with or without time discrimination. The difference between one and the other is that in the tariff with hourly discrimination the electricity consumption is billed according to the time of day, while the tariff without hourly discrimination is a type of tariff within the regulated electricity market that applies a single price for the kWh of electricity consumed at any time of the day during a full day.

What can you take into account in your day-to-day life to save on your electricity bill?

  • Avoid silent consumption: unplugging electronic devices that you are not using or disconnecting them directly can save up to 10% on your monthly bill.  Even if appliances are on “stand-by”, they are not completely switched off, so they continue to use energy. This also applies to items that are plugged into the mains when they are not in use, such as mobile phone chargers.
  • Use energy-saving or low-energy light bulbs: they save between 60% and 80% of electrical energy to produce the same light as a traditional light bulb. Using energy-saving bulbs can lead to significant savings at the end of the year.
  • Adjust the temperature: it is recommended that the average temperature in the home should be between 19 and 21 degrees in winter and between 24 and 26 degrees in summer. In addition, using a thermostat to programme the heating by zones and time slots can allow you to be comfortable at home without having to spend more on gas than necessary.
  • Use consumption apps: having energy-saving apps on your mobile phone can help you save electricity at home, as they tell you how much you are spending on electricity and gas, as well as having many other features.
