Energy Saving Tips

Tips for taking practical actions to save energy and cut fuel bills, as well as information on financial support opportunities. 


A proportion of your bill (around 27p a day on average) goes to us to keep the lights on for you.

We deliver electricity to homes and businesses via a network of overhead power lines and underground cables, but we are not a supplier. However, we do understand that energy bills can provide financial challenges. This page offers useful advice from Citizen’s Advice, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and a number of other organisations on how you could save money on your energy bills.

Big Energy Saving Week 2020

We are happy to support this year’s Big Energy Saving Week, a national campaign to help people cut their energy bills, get the financial support they need, and reduce their carbon footprint into the bargain. The campaign is led by Citizens’ Advice, the Energy Saving Trust and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).

Use your power to make a big difference

This year’s campaign is calling on everyone to  ‘Use your power to make a big difference’.  By following a few simple energy saving tips, we can all cut back on the energy we use.

Small steps such as turning off lights when they are not in use and remembering not to leave laptops and mobile phones on charge longer than necessary can help to save money and cut carbon emissions.

It is also a good idea to look into switching energy tariffs or supplier.
