We are very pleased to be partnering with the National Trust to provide Merton residents with their own FREE npower home energy monitors. We’ve already given lots away at events this summer and are hoping to get them into many more of your homes!
Once installed, you will begin to learn how much energy you are using on a day to day basis via a real time display of electricity use. This is done by checking to see how your reading out goes up and down depending on what appliances you happen to be using.
In a very short time you will become familiar with what uses most energy in your home and you will find yourself taking steps to reduce your use of it by developing habits such as turning out lights and only filling the kettle with the water you need rather than right to the top.
By doing this you will achieve two things.
The first is that you will save energy and so save money when it comes to paying your bill.
The second is that you will reduce your carbon footprint and so have a less damaging effect on the environment.
We will keep in touch to see how you got on and to hear any feedback you might have for us. By feeding us this information, you will be helping us to develop a strategy for helping all the residents of Merton reduce their impact on the environment and we are grateful for this help.
