Energy Tips

Fancy a cuppa?

When you make a cup of tea or coffee, boil only the amount of water needed. If everybody did this for just one day we could save enough energy to light every street lamp in Gibraltar for one night.  (Go Mad, The Ecologist, 2001).

A video recorder on standby uses almost as much current as one playing a DVD.  When the standby light is on, so is the appliance, so it's still using energy. If everyone in the UK switched off their TVs and recorders from the mains switch, enough energy would be saved to shut down two nuclear power stations.  (Go Mad, The Ecologist, 2001).
