BIG SWITCH OFF On average UK households spend £35 a year each powering appliances left in standby mode. This is the energy used by certain appliances when they are not in use and not switched off at the plug. That’s quite a lot of money to spend powering the lights on your digibox! Think of all the electrical appliances you own – phone? Laptop? MP3 player? Digital camera? TV? digibox? DVD player? Hair straighteners? The list is endless… Join in with our switch off campaign by making sure that you switch off your appliances at the plug – Today we’re reminding you to really think about what you need to have plugged in, and switch everything else off at the plug. Start making the changes for tomorrow by acting today!
