Go green to save £6 billion

British households that choose to invest in green improvements will find they can save their share of a £6 billion pot.

New research by uSwitch.com has found that amount is being wasted each year by homes that have so far not joined the eco-friendly revolution. Across the country, more than four in ten addresses are missing out on an average of £530 a year by not adhering to the latest green advice. With the price of energy soaring, it is surely the time to invest in sustainable and environmental technology that can slash power consumption.

Kevin Sears, energy efficiency expert at uSwitch.com, said installing energy monitors is a good idea, before adding: “While the bigger investments such as insulating your home may cost more, they tend to offer even better returns.” The Confederation of British Industry recently said that the Green Deal has the potential to revolutionise the eco-friendliness of UK homes and businesses.
