Insulate your home

Installing home insulation is an investment which will give you long term savings. Your power bill will be much lower, and your home warmer, drier and more comfortable – and of course, your carbon footprint will be smaller as you won’t be using as much power to heat your home.

Use lighting and appliances efficiently

The type of lighting and appliances you have in your home, and how you use them can add up to about one third of your power bill, or two-thirds during winter when you are heating your home.  On winter mornings and evenings grid electricity has a higher mix of fossil-fuel generation, so being energy efficient with lighting and heating makes a big difference to the planet and your wallet.
