Big Energy Saving Week
British households could save £1.7bn a year by switching appliances off standby; new research from the Energy Saving Trust has found.
In the countdown to next week’s Big Energy Saving Week – a joint campaign between Energy Saving Trust, Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) and Citizens Advice – research reveals the number of appliances in homes is sending bills out of control and costing households billions.
Throughout the campaign the Energy Saving Trust will be issuing research and guidance to help householders learn how to take control of their electricity and heating bills with free advice available throughout the week over the phone, online and at events across the UK.
