  3. Electric meters are to be installed and analysed for every single electrical device.
  4. Electrical devices not in use need to be switched off (not stand-by)
  5. Energy-saving bulbs need to be installed throughout.
  6. Occasionally used rooms like washrooms need to be equipped with motion detectors, for lights.
