With all of us spending a lot more time at home due to coronavirus, our energy usage is already going to be through the roof – and even more so once we start cranking the heating this winter. This also means that our energy bills are likely to skyrocket, as well as our greenhouse gas emissions.
But, as Jamie Durie from Groundswell explains, there are a few simple things we can all do around our homes to make sure we’re using our energy efficiently, which will save us money on our power bills, and lower our greenhouse gas emissions. It’s a win for our wallets, and a win for the planet!
