Home energy savings

Why save energy?

By saving energy you will be saving yourself money on your fuel bills, making your home warmer and at the same time helping to conserve our environment.

The cost of supplying energy into the home has generally been rising recently and is expected to continue. This is reflected in your household's energy bills.

Every time we turn on our heating, switch on our lights, heat water, cook, or use any gas or electrical appliances in our homes, we may be damaging our planet by adding to the threat of global warming.
