Switch Off Day30th October 2010
With the clocks going back today, it is expected that we will begin to use more energy. Lights will be turned on earlier, central heating will be on for longer.
Research has shown that nearly three out of five (56%) UK households are more concerned this year about the cost of their utility bills this coming winter.
Depsite people concerns and the current economic climate, over a third (38%) are forgetting simple energy conservation methods such as turning off lights that are not in use, turning the TV off standby (43%), this is potentially wasting millions of pounds worth of energy every year and also wasting these individuals money.
Stop passing the blame! 22% of you blame your partner or spouse for leaving the lights on and 21% blame their kids as the reason why energy saving advice is not being listened to.
