The Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) has given tips on how electricity consumers can reduce their consumption and expenditure on energy.
NERC, on its Facebook page, said most people unconsciously paid more for electricity due to their domestic habits.
The agency advised that when pressing clothes, the iron should always be set to the right temperature to conserve energy.
It also stated that clothes should be pressed in bulk instead of pressing them in bits.
The agency further said it is economical to press clothes at periods of low electricity consumption - including times when most people are away at work.
NERC also warned against putting hot food in freezer as this could lead to paying more for electricity
It would be recalled that adverts by the Power Holding Company of Nigeria had urged consumers to switch off electrical appliances when not in use. This has been said to help conserve energy and prevent power surges that could lead to fire outbreaks.
Many electricity consumers have decried paying more for electricity in recent times.
