If you are going to switch to paperless billing, our advice would be to use an e-mail account that you check regularly, and to add the electricity supplier's e-mail address to your whitelist so that your bill notification does not going into your junk mail folder.
Tips For Saving Money On Your Electricity Bill
During the summer, dry clothes on a line outside if you can instead of using the tumble dryer.
Instead of cooking every evening, think about making enough for a number of meals, e.g. a large stew, that can be portioned out and put in the freezer. This will save you the hassle of cooking each evening and save you electricity. Take out a meal portion each day to defrost, then heat it in the microwave.
Remember to switch off lights when you leave an empty room. Once you make the effort to it soon becomes a habit, and it all helps.
Only set the washing machine on a high temperature when necessary. High temperature washes use a lot of electricity to heat the water, and much of the time a 40 degree C wash will suffice.
Tips if You Can Invest in Energy Saving
Improve the insulation of your home. Insulation of your loft can save a lot of energy. If you have an old home with poor wall insulation there are now modern insulation techniques that can often be applied to improve matters.
Buy a Wireless Electricity Monitor such as the Owl Cm119. This will provide up to the minute information on how much your electricity usage is costing you, and therefore help you get into money saving ways.
Consider switching over to energy saving lightbulbs. Whilst these will save you a lot of energy and money, these are fluorescent light bulbs which aren't to everyone's taste as there is a small delay as they flicker when switched on and the light is a bit "harsher" than traditional bulbs. No doubt the technology will keep improving though.
