As we well know, expensive energy is spreading not only in Italy but throughout the European Union. The problems began to be precise about a year ago, when the first conflicts broke out in Ukraine, which have brought with them many consequences at an economic and energy level.
In particular, we note the reckless price rise of basic foodstuffs, such as peanut oil, which was later reflected in general inflation in the food sector. Added to this was the haphazard increase in the cost of energy in general, both for methane gas and electricity.
It was precisely this event, in this case, that forced the main energy supply companies (such as Enel Energia, for what concerns the Italian territory) to consequently increase the relative energy bills, causing no small amount of discontent at the of European citizens.
This is how the governments of the main European nations immediately took measures against this burdensome expensive energy, in such a way as to help above all the most needy segments of the population. As far as the Italian government is concerned, for example, we recall the Aiuti-Bis decree and the Aiuti-Ter decree, which among other things introduced the 150 euro energy bonus, deductible directly from the cost of bill items, in addition to all the tax breaks and deductions provided both for the installation of a photovoltaic system, as well as incentives for the purchase of new generation household appliances.
Although these aids have been really important for Italian citizens, many families still run the risk of incurring the poverty line, having to bear the weight of such huge bills.
This is how today we provide you with some advice for consuming less electricity, and consequently saving significant sums at the end of the month.
In particular, we will focus on household appliances, which are undoubtedly the most used devices in the home environment, especially nowadays. However, there are some household appliances that really consume a lot of energy even when they are off: this is the case, for example, of the electric oven, as well as all the other devices that nowadays are equipped with a liquid crystal screen, which it is lit even if the appliance is off.
This is why we therefore recommend that you unplug the power supply for devices such as the microwave oven and the like, since even these screens could involve an energy expenditure, which should be avoided in the current times.
