Would you like to save energy and money?

Energy is essential to the comfort of our homes to provide heat and electricity. We also use energy to run our cars and for personal transport. However, there are lots of ways we can use energy more efficiently while still meeting our energy needs. This following link offers tips and advice to save you money on your energy bills, increase the comfort of your home and help to reduce climate change in the process!

If each of us becomes aware of our own power when it comes to energy efficiency, and use it properly, we can collectively make a big difference. To ourselves, to our pockets, and to the environment. By taking individual responsibility and changing our behaviour in small ways every day, we’ll help save energy while we save money too. All we have to do is recognise our power, and use it. That’s what the Power of One is all about.
