GCE Group launches the social campaign in Russia "I know where the current is flowing to!"
Today, on the professional Power Engineers' Day, which symbolically falls on the shortest daylight hours of the year, GCE Group announces the launch of the social campaign in Russia "I know where the current is flowing to!" Through out the year, we will inform people what hidden losses are borne by every person, who daily uses ordinary household appliances.

"Switch off the light before you leave!" is the old slogan for saving, and it is time to correct it: "Plug out the electric appliances after the use!" Someone may say: “Just some cents you save!” But the figures tell a different story.

According to the Europe Energy Portal the average tariff, for example, in Germany is 0.211 EUR per 1 kilowatt / hour.

According to the data of the market research centre TNS, in Germany at least 75% of the population, that is, at least 61.5 million people, are using mobile phones. Each charger left in the plug point for one extra hour, consumes up to 0.00224 kW. We make simple calculations: just Germany alone, within an hour loses more than 29 000 EUR! Think about how often we leave the charger in the plug point for days!

Where does the money go?

In standby and in sleep mode the electric devices like laptops, coffee machines, speakers, etc. together consume a fair amount of kilowatts. We do not think about it and for the sake of convenience we do not plug out the home appliances: chargers remain on the network, computer is "on hold" throughout the day, and no talk at all about plugging out the kettle or microwave. Such carelessness turns into an overpayment of bills, while we criticize on the increase in the rates. Polls show that most of us simply do not know what damages can cause to our wallets inappropriate use of appliances.

The Table given below shows the power consumption of devices in various modes.

* Standby mode (standby) - mode of operation of the appliance, where it is turned off, but not unplugged

From the Power Engineers’ Day, which symbolically falls on the shortest daylight hours of the year, GCE Group announces the launch of the social campaign in Russia "I know where the current is flowing to!" During the year, we will inform people hidden losses every person bears for the daily use of the common household appliances.

- We started this public awareness campaign out of social motives, sense of civic duty and a desire to inform the population about how much energy we are wasting in our homes - says Alexander Moskalenko, the President of GCE Group, - “Having surrounded ourselves  with comfortable electrical devises, we do not think about the volumes our common losses! At the same time we are paying for our negligence due to simple ignorance. This is a small contribution of GCE in support to the big awareness campaign for energy saving, which is being done by governments of various countries and environmentalists around the world. We very much look forward for the support from the media, without which the implementation of this awareness campaign is impossible!
