Are you getting the best deal from your energy supplier?

Energy monitor loan scheme

You can borrow an energy monitor for free, just like a library book, from any of the county's libraries. This will help you manage your energy use more effectively. The monitor will show you:

  • how much energy you are using in your home at any time and how much it costs,
  • how energy use increases when you use certain appliances such as the kettle or an electric shower,
  • whether you've left anything on before going out or going to bed.
