Save up to 85 a year
In 2012, the Energy Saving Trust calculated that we pay up to £1.3 billion every year on standby, 9-16% of our household usage. Environment Minister Lord Taylor of Holbeach said: "We can all do simple things like switching off our televisions, computers and other home electronics and save up to 85 on electricity bill each year.".

  • Why is this Eco?
    Because leaving electrical appliances on standby costs you money, and contributes to your carbon footprint. According to the Energy Saving Trust, making sure that appliances aren't left on standby saves the average household £40 a year, and 160kg of carbon. The average household wastes £37 each year by leaving appliances on standby - across the UK this is equivalent to the annual output of about 2½ 700MW power stations. Households in the UK now spend around 10% of their electricity bill on standby power and the average household has up to 12 gadgets left on standby or charging at any one time.
