Electric boilers (about 3.5 TWh), frozen refrigerator (less than 3 TWh) and televisions (2.5 TWh) also use a large share” – indicated.

In contrast, replacing conventional lamps with energy-saving ones – in the opinion of PIE – will allow this Low electricity consumption In Polish households an additional rate of 12 percent. (3.4 TWh). According to analysts, 52 percent of traditional energy-intensive light bulbs are still in use. Polish families.
