Energy saving changes while working from home
Having to work from home and being confined to the house during lockdown has brought with it a few challenges with added gas and electricity costs, e.g. additional lighting, heating, electronic equipment and kitchen usage. I found that taking some simple steps helped reduce my usage and costs, including: switching off appliances at the wall when not in use (e.g. my laptop charger), wearing extra layers while sitting still at the laptop, and positioning my work desk next to a window for natural light.
Why the contribution is important
I find applying these simple measure are effective in keeping our energy costs down, whilst also being less harmful for the environment, particularly now this is likely to be a longer term way of working.
