Unleashing the Power of Sustainability: Big Energy Saving Week 2024

As we dive into 2024, it's time to embrace a more sustainable and energy-conscious lifestyle. Big Energy Saving Week is upon us, running from January 15th to January 21st. This week-long initiative is not just a campaign; it's a call to action to take control of energy consumption and make informed decisions that lead to substantial savings on energy bills.

Understanding Your Energy Consumption

The first step in our energy-saving journey is to understand our consumption. Take a closer look at your energy bills. What are your usage patterns? Are there areas where small adjustments could make a significant impact on your bills? Knowledge is the key to empowerment.


Appliances can be a common source of energy wastage and a very easy way to increase energy efficiency. You may have heard about the infamous energy vampires which are appliances that use energy even when they’re off but still plugged in. These include things TVs and video game consoles.

When choosing appliances for your home it is best to choose a product with a good energy rating. It is recommended to choose an appliance with a rating of C and above. While these can be more expensive, they can help to reduce your monthly energy bill long term.

Upgrading Home Insulation for Comfort and Savings

As winter takes hold, evaluate your home's insulation. Consider upgrading by adding insulation to your attic, walls, or floors. Not only does this keep your home cosy, but it significantly reduces heating costs in the long run. Explore our insulation kits at Batteries & Solar for an effective and sustainable solution.

Switch to Energy Efficient Lightbulbs

You shouldn’t expect a massive change to energy efficiency when using more efficient lighting but it can still make a difference.

Conventional incandescent lighting will typically produce more heat energy than light energy. If you are aiming to improve the energy efficiency rating of your house, incandescent and halogen spotlights are classed as low efficiency lights in under EPCs. Switching to low-energy LED lightbulbs could reduce energy usage by 90% compared to other lightbulbs.

Accessing Financial Support for a Warm Home

No one should be left in the cold. Check if you qualify for government grants or financial assistance programs, especially if you are on a low income. Ensuring that everyone has access to a warm home is a shared responsibility that strengthens our community.

Spreading the Word for a Greener Plymouth

Sharing is caring! Spread the knowledge and tips with friends and family. Let's create a ripple effect of positive change in our community, inspiring others to join the journey towards sustainability.
