Energy saving tips: Turn off appliances at the wall
Tips on reducing your fuel bills and energy usage.

This week's tip is around:
If your appliances are on standby — they look turned off, but often there is still a light on — they are still using electricity. And you are still paying for them. Some appliances use almost as much electricity while on standby as when they’re on.
There’s a simple solution: turn off appliances at the wall before you go to bed. You’ll notice the difference in your electricity bills pretty quickly.
