In households in Hanoi capital, power saving is no longer a strange practice, but still a broad concept and difficult to be adequately perceived. Everyday, the media, the press, the radio advocate for activities of power savings to help them understand the role of economical and efficient use of electricity in the home. However, the application and practical use of the devices in every household is still not easy.

Mrs. Tran Nguyet, deputy head of one residential group in Ha Dinh Ward said: "There are only two people in my family, but the monthly electric bill is comparatively high due to operating simultaneously two refrigerators. Though there is unused room in the refrigerators, but as we are worried about the electrical damage to the compartments and equipment, so we keep them run continuously. However, through the training session today, I know that they do not need to run continuously for power savings. Instead, just occasionally plug and by cleaning the device carefully, we could still save power and do not have to worry about damaged compartments".
Not only was the guidance given on the effective use of refrigerator, the training also helped individuals in Ha Dinh Ward understand the power saving methods for other equipment such as air conditioners, washing machines, televisions, computers, electric fans, microwaves, vacuum cleaner. At the same time, it is to encourage the households to use the environment friendly stoves as husk-fueled stoves, and biogas fueled stoves, and to enhance the understanding of architecture of building for application of power-saving measures with appropriate use in the family.
