”Energy literacy” warning… 22 June 2015

Young bill payers in Northern Ireland claim they do not fully understand their energy bill or the terms that describe how much energy they use, according to the Energy Saving Trust public opinion tracker UK:Pulse

 

Only seven per cent of under–35s say they fully understand their bill, with nearly 40 per cent unable to identify that electricity is measured in Kilowatt hours.

And while 82 per cent of people across the UK say they are willing to change their behaviour to save money on their energy bills – households in Northern Ireland are wasting more than £11million a year by failing to take simple steps to improve their energy use.

The results come as the Energy Saving Trust publishes its list of 10 ‘quick wins’ to help people save money in the home – and a digital quiz to put their knowledge to the test.

Patrick Thompson, Operations Manager of the Energy Saving Trust in Northern Ireland said: “By making small changes in their daily routine, households here can save themselves millions of pounds – and prevent thousands of tonnes of CO2 escaping into the atmosphere.

“For example, leaving appliances on standby when not in use costs an unnecessary £8million ever year and overfilling the kettle costs £1.5million – but making small changes to routine can result in big savings. Even washing clothes at 30 degrees instead of higher temperatures could save us £2.2million per year.”

Although keen to save money, younger generations are less likely to make the changes that could save cash.
