Ever wondered how much energy your neighbour uses?


Have you ever wondered how energy efficient your neighbour is or how much they spend on their energy bills? Well, a new report claims householders could cut their gas and electricity bills by as much as £70 a year if they could compare each other’s energy bills.

Think tank Policy Exchange claims there is “evidence” both internationally and in the UK that people cut the amount of energy they use when they compare it to a more energy efficient neighbour’s bills. The ‘Smarter, Greener, Cheaper’ report suggests the Government should extend energy efficiency schemes like the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) to allow schemes that can help households reduce their energy bills to compete for subsidies.
