Apparently over the last year we have used 5% less electricity, compared to previous year.
We decided we have saved that 5% by
- Looking at the SMART meter regularly and questioning what it is reading. If its high we go and find out why.
- Developing good habits of turning off lights, devices, anything on standby, etc
- Planning cooking - its either all on the hob or all in the oven.
- Being careful about having our TV system on. (8 years old, and good but expensive to run). Not left to burble in the corner - watch something purposefully or turn it off!
Apparently, we could save £50 by committing to a 2 year deal. Unfortunately there was no information on the 2 year deal in the envelope! So will have to go on line anyway! Grr...
