Wasting electricity is caused by leaving things on when they are not being used. This means leaving on lights when we’re not in the room, or leaving the TV on or plugged into the mains when we are not in the house. Any outlet plugged into the main socket will draw electricity, so it is the best interest of the household to leave electronics turned off, or unplugged, until it needs to be used. With most chargeable battery items, such as phones, gaming devices and cameras, the battery length will deteriorate if left charging for too long, leading to a shorter battery life with each use. Therefore, once the device is fully charged, it should be removed, and the charger removed from the socket, to stop further waste of electricity. Even leaving an entire house’s lights on when only using one room can waste five times as much energy than if you’re using all the sockets in only one room. As well as needing to be replaced three times as much as any other electric component, lights use more than twice as much energy to run daily. To keep the same amount of light entering a room without using energy, one could try keeping the curtains open in certain rooms, to allow natural light to enter the house. This is both free, and is better for your eyes, reducing the strain on the iris to focus on things in low-light conditions.

Turn
off electrical appliance when they are not in use. You should not leave plug
in socket when it is not use, pull it out as it is finished. It may save
about 20% of electricity. 

Don't leaave appliances turned on especially, when you are going out
for long time,  I mean more than one day. You can use a solar system from an
electrician to save electricity.

Good day! I work at home and my computer is always on, so my electricity bills are high. And besides, I often play computer games, so the computer also works at night. But on the website https://skins.cash/ I sell what I manage to get in such games as CS GO and DOTA 2. At least I return some money.
