In view of the current power crisis and power cuts throughout the state, the Energy Coordination Cell (ECC) of the energy department of Andhra Pradesh, has appealed to around 25 million consumers to save energy by releasing an open letter.

According to an ECC release, one unit of electricity saved is equivalent to 1.2 units of electricity produced. The energy conservation measures like arresting wastage of energy, including avoiding usage of air-conditioners indiscriminately, using solar heaters and replacing incandescent lamps with CFLs have a potential to save 10,000-15,000 million units.
