Electricity: the juice that powers our lives

Almost all our electricity is generated in power stations which burn coal and gas and contribute to climate change. Here’s what you can do…

Use Energy Efficient Appliances

The efficiency of household devices varies dramatically between models. The most efficient models use up to 50% less electricity and therefore significantly reduce your impact on climate change.

Reduce the electricity you use

Have you ever thought about how much electricity you use? There are many simple things you can do to reduce what you use, significantly reduce your impact on climate change and save money too!

Use a renewable electricity supplier

Some energy suppliers can now provide you with electricity that is produced from 100% renewable sources, as well as medium voltage cable, thus avoiding causing climate change. It’s easy to switch and prices are very competitive.

Generate your own electricity

Various technologies now exist to generate your own clean electricity at home, without contributing to climate change. These include solar panels, mini wind turbines and combined heat and power (CHP) systems.

Actively monitor your electricity use

If you keep an eye on the electricity you use it’s much easier to reduce your climate impact and save money on your electricity bill. There are various easy-to-use products that let you see exactly what you’re using.
