Save on electricity bills and go Eco
Given that electricity consumption in Thailand is reaching levels of demand not previously foreseen, with a strong likelihood of price hikes in the near future, it’s no surprise to see an increasing interest in businesses offering energy saving devices.
In Pattaya, the Eco Concept Co. Ltd is forging ahead in the ‘green’ energy stakes with its wide range of Ecobrand products, most of which are designed to help save electricity, in some cases being able to reduce power bills by up to 20 percent.
Situated in Energy House, which is on Thepprasit Road, on the left-hand side if you are entering the street from Sukhumvit Road, the Ecostore is filled with a multitude of energy saving products from the best-selling and well-known Electric Current Stabilizer to items that can be run off your home computer or via a simple USB outlet.
As the company notes, ‘all electrical equipment and appliances become less efficient over time. As they age they consume more power in order to deliver the same service, hence the higher electricity bills. Since there are many appliances in every household, each with different power and current requirements, this effects the voltage and current consumption.’
So, with these factors in mind, the Ecostore outlet has been stocked with a myriad of items designed to help reduce electricity consumption, or make it more efficient.
You might think the cost of some of these energy-saving items would be prohibitive, but in fact the Ecostore outlet offers such products as a First Aid Kit, which is perfect for the home, the car, or travelling, at just 479 baht. They have First Aid kits starting at 199 baht, but it’s the mid-range 479 baht product, with no less than 128 items packed inside which looks tremendous value.
For those who are tired of having to deal with computer power leads, light sockets, telephone cables and the like cluttering your home or work station, Ecostore has what they call a Universal Tower Socket for 599 baht.
This device is a space-saving design which has a retractable power cord in its base and can handle up to 2,500 watts of load. The idea is to plug all your various electrical devices into it, set it up on top of your computer tower or in a corner of the desk, and the leads are all out of the way, thereby removing the unsightly look of many home and office setups.
If you’re a regular traveller, be it for business or pleasure, and you take your computer with you, then a Universal Travel Adapter for 299 baht could be well worth the investment. It comes complete with plug conversions for most countries, along with two USB sockets and nine charging cables for a variety of mobile phones.
With the danger of dengue fever ever-present in the Pattaya area, a 499-baht Ecobrand Solar Mosquito Killer could be just what you need. It charges in the sun during the day, and at night its ultra-violet light attracts and despatches mosquitoes, quickly and efficiently.
