You might be surprised by how much money you can save by making simple changes to cut your energy use at home.
For example, switching your appliances off at the wall instead of leaving them on standby could save you £55 a year and won’t cost you a penny. Even reducing your shower time to four minutes a day could save you £65 a year.
