Meralco has purchased and tested some of the so-called “energy-saving” devices that are currently offered in the market to find out if it really helps in lowering your electricity bill.
In a report by ABS-CBN News, Meralco tested the devices by simulating a household with two lighting fixtures, a TV, and an electric fan. Meralco concludes that “energy-saving” gadgets are not effective in lowering your energy consumption.

Engineer Alfred Iporac, Manager of Meralco Power Lab, said that these plug-in devices show no evidence of savings and the devices’ no load consumption might even increase your power consumption. Meralco suggests other practices of saving electricity like taking advantage of energy-efficient appliances and lighting fixtures.
