Top Tips to Save Energy

Top Tips to Save Energy

  • Don't leave appliances on standby - turn them off. Appliances on standby are still using electrical energy.
  • Walk or cycle whenever you can. It saves transport energy and keeps you fit.
  • Ask if the heating can be turned down. Just turning it down by one degree will save loads of heating energy.
  • Re-use things where you can and then recycle them. It will save the energy used in making things and transporting them.
  • Use energy efficient light bulbs if possible. They use 1/5 of the electrical energy and last up to 10 times as long!
  • Keep heat from escaping by closing windows and doors when the heating is on.
  • Buy Irish and local goods where you can. This saves transport energy and creates less pollution.
  • Find out who in your school lives near you - you could save energy by sharing a car to get to school.

'Use energy carefully - look after the environment, look after your future.'
