In today’s news they have announced likely utility bill price increases of 40% over the next few months. Many people are now panicking into how they are going to cope with the escalating prices. Of course we are all aware that this is not the only household cost that is on the rise, fuel prices are creeping up and this with it is bringing the cost of food, clothing and even entertainment to much higher levels.
Luckily at the moment we are in the summer months and so for most normal households the cost of bills are minimal with no need for heating. However with the autumn and winter months fast approaching many people are looking at ways to bring down the bills, or face a very cold winter with heating rationed.
Of course we all know that literally using your electricity less means that your bills will be less – Switching off lights when the room is not in use and making sure TV’s and appliances are not left on standby can all help with the over all costs of your utility bills. However there is only so much we can do, which is why new ways to produce electricity have been announced.
Many people are now turning to renewable energy sources to power their home. Solar panels and wind mills are the way forward when it comes to the best ways of reducing your bills.
It can be expensive to buy your own solar and wind equipment and while the benefits will soon be obvious this seems to be putting people off making the initial move to these energy sources.
Earth4Energy seem to have been attracting media attention lately when they announced a new way to build your own renewable energy source equipment that claim at around 1/5th of the cost of the traditional solar and wind set up.
They apparently tell you how to reduce your electricity bill to help make your bills to a more manageable amount, so with the rising costs of bills it is something that could be considered if you want to reduce your monthly outgoings.
