Before we get into the Top 10 countdown, lets just go over a very fundamental rule. Make sure to discuss with family members about the importance of saving electricity. You can reward them if their participation has led to savings. Suggest them some tips like switching of the lights when they are not present there and attending a call in another room or having dinner at the dining table.
