We use a huge amount of energy everyday to heat our houses and power our appliances and gadgets. Generating this electricity is actually the main source of greenhouse gas emissions ahead of transportation.
This not only costs the Earth, it does hurt your wallet too as already high utility bills will further increase as the cost of resources raises. There are very easy steps you can take to ensure you reduce your energy usage whilst saving yourself some money!
Visit the Energy Saving Trust for more information on how you could make sustantial savings.
