Tips to help save energy and money

Your Smart meter means no more estimated bills* and better visibility of the energy you use and pay for.

Here are three easy steps to monitoring your energy use:

1. Try looking at your display when only essential electrical appliances like your fridge are running. This shows you your standard electricity use.

2. Now turn on other appliances to see how they affect your standard use. You’ll see what it costs to wash your clothes, boil the kettle or dry your hair.

3. You can then make more informed decisions about the electricity you use, like how often to use your dishwasher or tumble dryer.
