• Turn off lights, computers etc when you're not using them and avoid leaving things on standby overnight.
  • Put on an extra jumper and woolly socks before turning up the heating
  • Boil only the water you need in your kettle - and descale it regularly to make it more efficient
  • Make sure your home is well insulated
  • Wash your clothes at the energy saving temperature of 30 degrees - and if you can , hang washing outside on the line or indoors on a drying rack rather than using a power hungry tumble dryer.
  • If practical install solar panel on your roof.
