GOVERNMENTAL SECTOR

The governmental sector is one of the notably growing sectors. As this sector accompanies various growth developments, it is already witnessed in the country and will ultimately double the volume of energy consumption.

Optimal use of electric power in governmental sector :

- Establish a specialized unit to monitor the loads and the application of methods to raise the efficiency of the use of electric power.

- Carry out a review of the guidelines for the optimal use of air conditioning, lighting, and insulation as per the leaflets issued by the Company.

- Change work pattern and shift the electric load to out of peak time (1 pm – 5 pm).

- Use of spare generator for electric feed during peak time in coordination with the Company.

- Carry out periodic maintenance during summer season.

- Use of the auto control system for air conditioning loads and separate it from other loads.

- Use of high efficiency machinery and replacement of the old with new ones of high specifications.

- Improve the power factor (not less than 0.9) to reduce losses and make full use of machinery.

- Limit production during summer and increase it during winter.

- Teach the workers about the importance and the various methods to conserve electricity.

- Participate in the time-varied tariff program (free of charge) to help reduce loads and lower energy bill.

General instructions to the employee :

Dear Employee,

Your compliance with the following instructions will contribute effectively to the rationalization of electricity consumption, namely the reduction of the proportion of public waste to electric power consumption by (30%).  We hope you will graciously comply with the following guidelines :

- Ensure that air conditioners are switched OFF after work hours.

- In case a central air conditioning system is in use, other units must be switched OFF or vice versa to conserve electricity.

- Do not leave doors and windows open while air conditioners are in use.

- It is necessary to switch OFF office lights after work hours.

- Disconnect electrical appliances after work hours.

- As much as possible, take full advantage of the natural light.
