There are so many ideas on easy ways to save energy contained in these here archives that I thought it might be really useful if I collated them in one post for old and new Moral Fibres readers alike.

If you implemented all of these easy tips I’d estimate you could save at the very least £180 a year. That’s quite a low estimate – if you followed just two of these tips and turned down the brightness on your TV (saving up to £96 a year), and turned down your thermostat (saving up to £30 a year) then you’d already be saving £126 a year. Add in the 13 extra tips and you could be saving big time!
