Join a Green Energy Supplier

There are many simple things that we can do to reduce our carbon footprint. One of the simplest, and surprisingly often money-saving measures, is to join a renewable energy supplier.

Many of us do not shop each year for our energy supplier. Whilst a green energy company might not be the cheapest, it is a simple way in which your money can influence the energy industry.

If you already have switched to a green supplier, there is still room for action. Many older people do not shop for energy supply and are often stuck with poor deals. Helping them will save them money as well. And it’s not just the older people – I never shopped around for my energy supplier until my wife started to, a few years back. We saved a lot of money, and we feel we have done a little bit more towards a greener world.

So, sort yourself out first, but then ask your family and friends (they don’t have to be in Tatsfield) – with this simple measure, you will make a significant impact.

Light map of the world – The UK is pretty bright, and that’s not a good thing. 

Recently, with energy prices rising rapidly, we started to become more conscious about how we could consume less, primarily driven by the increase in our bills. We are not profligate energy users, but after just a month of implementing some very simple measures, we were amazed at the reduction of our energy bill.

Here are some measures that you too could take. Save money and save the world – how cool is that?

(Savings are for a typical three-bedroom, gas-heated home in Great Britain, using a gas price of 7p/kWh and electricity price of 28p/kWh (based on April 2022 price cap). Water savings are based on average occupancy. This household is projected to spend a total £1,971 on energy annually, including standing charge. Figures updated 3 February 2022).
