Cullompton given energy advice
10:00am Sunday 15th December 2013 in News
CULLOMPTON residents are being advised by a solar panel installation company to think about the energy they use in the run up to Christmas.
During the festive season household electricity consumption increases significantly and Solar Systems has compiled some tips to help homeowners save energy this Christmas.
Phil Grabham, Managing Director of Solar Systems, said: “One of the main reasons electricity consumption soars during the festive season is because people use more power to heat their homes and there is also the addition of Christmas lighting.
“According to GoCompare during the festive period a display of 100 five watt bulbs, which are switched on for six hours a day, will use the equivalent of 22.8 days of the average British household's energy consumption.
“With the recent energy price increases we are encouraging homeowners to think carefully about the electricity they use in the run up to Christmas and have come up with some top tips to help people save energy.”
