Alexei Kokorin – representative of the Russian branch of wwf (World Wildlife Fund) – advises the change, first of all, our consumer habits: do not leave lighted lamps in empty rooms, turn off unused appliances, more opportunities to use natural lighting. Experts also recommend to follow the example of Europe and abandon the incandescent lamps. They are extremely inefficient convert electricity into light – their efficiency is not more than 5-10%. In the West, gas-guzzling light has long been superseded by energy saving (fluorescent). For example, a lamp power 20V replaces the similar "light bulb Ilyich at 100V. The difference in energy consumption – a factor of 5. In this case, energy-saving products work 10-15 times longer. Specialists company's "House Technology" (design and installation of intelligent home control systems) believe that reducing the power consumption can be programmed lights with special electronic devices.

For example, exterior lighting private homes will light up only at night, and motion sensors turn on lights in rooms, not when someone lies. Another way to save energy – install automatic controls that will adjust lighting levels to the needs of the inhabitants of the house. Decrease in brightness by 25% (hardly noticeable to the human eye) will reduce electricity consumption by 20% and will prolong the "Life" bulbs. These solutions reduce energy costs not only in a separate apartment, but all high-rise building. In the common areas (staircases, corridors, stairwells) lamps typically burn around the clock. Between by their light demand no more than 5% of the time.
