Switch on the savings this Big Energy Saving Week

22 Jan 2019 02:25 PM

We are delighted to be supporting Big Energy Saving Week (BESW), which began yesterday. BESW is a national campaign to help people cut their energy bills and get all the financial support they are entitled to.

The theme of this year’s campaign is: check – switch – save, encouraging people to embrace the benefits of switching their energy supplier to secure a better deal. As household customers in England and Wales, we cannot switch our water supplier. But, there are lots of small and simple lifestyle switches we can all make that could really make a difference – helping to save money on our water and energy bills.

Does our water usage really impact our energy usage? It really does – according to Energy Saving Trust, about 15 per cent of a typical gas heated household’s heating bill comes from heating the water for showers, baths and (hot) taps; contributing an average of £80 a year to your energy bill. With this in mind, CCWater’s water-saving expert Ana-Maria Millan guides us through some of her favourite ways to save water and energy.

We’ll be sharing lots more of our favourite ways to save water and energy throughout the week across our social media channels. Follow us on FacebookTwitter and Instagram.

Get involved in Big Energy Saving Week, join the conversation by following #BESW2019 and share your own water and energy saving tips.

Big Energy Saving Week is a joint campaign between Energy Saving Trust, Department of Energy and Climate Change and Citizens Advice
