Here in Bristol, action is already being taken across the city to reduce our energy usage.
Bristol City Council’s Energy Service have installed 20,000 energy efficient street lamps across the city to date, and invested nearly £2 million in energy efficiency.
Over 2000 homes in Bristol have received help from the council’s Energy Service to become warmer and healthier, by upgrading energy efficiency.
There are many small actions you can take to lower your home’s energy usage. A few ideas to get you started:
Note: For health and other reasons, some households will not be able to turn the thermostat as low as 18. Do not risk your health or wellbeing through being cold.
These measures can lower your bills, so it’s a win for the environment and a win for your wallet.
Why not make an energy pledge? Bristol Energy Network has an excellent one that’s easy to do online.
