lectrical Energy?How can I save E



There are several ways to save electrical energy in your home or business:


In the UK, the Energy Saving Trust (EST) is a good resource for finding energy-efficient appliances. The EST provides information on a wide range of products, including appliances, lighting, and heating and cooling systems. They also provide a list of energy-efficient products that have been independently tested and certified. You can also look for the European Union Energy Label (EEL) which indicates the energy efficiency of an appliance.The EEL has a scale from A+++ (most efficient) to G (least efficient) and can be found on a wide range of appliances including fridges, freezers, washing machines, dishwashers, and more.


  1. Unplug devices when not in use: Many devices, such as cell phone chargers and computers, continue to use power even when turned off. Unplugging these devices when not in use can save energy.
  2. Use natural light: Open curtains and blinds during the day to let natural light in and reduce the need for artificial light.
  3. Use a programmable thermostat: Set your thermostat to automatically lower the temperature at night or when you're away to save energy on heating and cooling.
  4. Make sure you are using LED lightbulbs, they use less energy and last longer than traditional incandescent lightbulbs.
  5. Reduce standby power by unplugging devices when not in use or use smart power strips that can be remotely turned off.
  6. Insulate your home properly, this will help keep it warm in the winter and cool in the summer, reducing the need for heating and cooling.
  7. Do not overcharge your devices, unplug them once they are fully charged.


By implementing some or all of these strategies, you can save energy and costs on your energy bills
