Saving Energy Working From Home

Many of us will be working from home for the next few weeks, which means more energy usage at home. That's why we've put together a few little tips to help you save money on your bills.

 

  1. Turn the lights off and make the most of natural lighting. The amount of daylight we have maybe less at the moment because of the season but make the most of what we have!

2. If you're working from a laptop, try unplugging it for a while. If you're on an Economy 7 meter, you can charge your laptop overnight for cheaper rates.

 

3. Fancy a cuppa? Remember to fill the kettle with only the amount of water that you need.

4. We know a bath sounds tempting if you're working from home, but getting a shower instead could help save energy!

 

5. Refer a friend to Nabuh and both get £20 free credit on us! Our Grace tariff is the cheapest fixed PAYG tariff in the UK - so there's no reason not to!
