TIPS

Here are some tips and information ‘hot spots’ on saving energy in your life.

1. TURN OFF appliances when not in use.

2. Check out Government Schemes giving grants and offers. See if these are available to you. This may be a great opportunity for you to make your home an ‘eco home.’

3. Look for the ‘Energy Saving Recommended Logo‘ on products before purchasing them. Find out which products will be energy saving in your home by product comparison.

4. Find out what measures can be taken to change your home. Things including insulation and glazing.

5. Generate your own energy. Technologies like solar panels and wind turbines are becoming more popular for this use. Even some areas have developed schemes that allow people to do this. The Rural Generation Zone is just one of them.

6. Even find out if your garden can be sustainable.

As an extra tip, Travel LIGHT. Try cycling, being a method of transport that would be environmentally friendly.
