A high percentage of the budget of a higher educational institution (HEI) in the Philippines goes to electricity. Not only is this caused by high-power air conditioning units and laboratory equipment, but also by the lavish spending of electricity by the students for non-educational purposes. Ways to conserve electrical energy should be implemented. The use of a power-saving switch has been a practice at hotels, some households, and even schools. They are programmed to enable power only for authorized personnel. This also ensures no standby power of any appliance will be wasted. This study aims to develop a device that shall lessen power wastage. This is done by a power switch with Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) which only allows instructors to access a room, and turns on its power. The project prototype is installed in one classroom of the HEI. Feedback from 207 participants, both students and faculty members, shows that all are in agreement with this project but need minor improvements. Power consumption with and without the said prototype was compared and shows that power wastage without it is 7.81%. T-test was conducted from the data gathered from two different conditions with and without the system and showed that the installation of a Power Saving Switch using RFID has a significant difference in a room’s power consumption.
