Many people complain that their television or electronic appliance got “burnt” as the voltage shot up suddenly. By saying “burnt” they obviously don't mean that it was caught up in flames, but they refer to a very common phenomenon of an appliance becoming non-functional all of a sudden due to a drastic fluctuation in the incoming voltage. When the voltage increases abruptly to a very high value for a very short span of time, it is referred to as voltage surges.

We may talk about energy efficiency, we may research about latest trends in non-conventional energy sources, we may even implement these ideas based on our Google research. Bijli Bachao is one such effort to provide information in this field and we thank our readers for their support that encourages us to continue our efforts. But, one question we would like to ask is that how many of us have given a thought to the fact that the device through which we Google and through
Power supply is erratic at most places in India, with voltage fluctuating in both directions (up and down) at many places frequently. These voltage fluctuations can damage appliances, there by causing them to end much before their normal useful life. When voltage goes down, electric current in the appliance increase, which can result in burning of the appliance. Voltage Stabilizers have thus found place in many homes and offices in India. In this article we will talk
Microwave ovens are there in Indian market since quite some time, but it is only in the last few years that they have caught the fancy of Indian kitchen. We at Bijli Bachao get several requests asking for suggestions for buying microwave ovens and thus we picked it up as a topic to research about.

Washing machines are no different. We at Bijli Bachao got several messages in the past from readers asking for ideas on buying a washing machine and this was a long pending item we had in our mind to write about. The intent of this article is to provide you list of "Best Washing Machines
Twenty-four hour power supply is a rarity in India. There are very few places in the country that can boast of having continuous supply of power. All this has resulted in growth of Inverters, UPS and DG sets industry in India. Although there are many branded models of inverters/ups available in the country, there are many people who still go for cheap/unbranded models that can significantly increase electricity bills. The efficiency of inverters/ups is not even considered
