Quotes

"My water bill was £435 last year, what can I do to reduce costs?"
"It's encouraging that nearly all retailers are now displaying some form of information about the energy performance of products. However, the biggest problem is missing information on the label or information in the wrong format which means consumers are either confused or not fully-informed before they make a purchasing decision."
"More energy efficient products are coming out all the time and better labelling will help people choose the best products."
"But smaller gadgets and appliances quietly running in the background could be pushing your energy bills up much faster than you realised."
