The Palestinian electricity sector suffers from many electrical problems such as high electrical deficit rate, transmission losses, and absent energy management strategies. The electrical deficit rate is estimated around 30 % of the total demand. Energy efficiency improvement is an important way to reduce electrical deficit with various opportunities available in a cost-effective manner. This paper presents a low cost electrical conservation through energy management to improve electrical energy efficiency in Gaza Strips. Using efficient light technology, reducing air leak, and cooling air source are few approaches available. This paper investigates identifying cost-effective energy efficiency measures and potentials. Energy audits have been performed at Gaza Technical Center (GTC), as commercial sector, and Palestine Factory (APF), as industrial sector. The result of this audits was a potential of 7.5% energy saving. Generalizing this result could reduce the electrical deficit rate in Gaza Strip by 3.3%. This paper leads to devise specific low cost electrical conservation approaches to commercial and industrial sectors; moreover, reduces the electrical deficit rate
