Secret Scotland

If it's secret, and in Scotland…

Today is Cut Your Energy Costs Day

10 January is Cut Your Energy Costs Day.

Hadn’t heard of this one before, but it was established by the CEEA (Canadian Energy Efficiency Alliance), so that explains why not.

Joking aside, it’s a subject relevant to many these days.

Except, apparently, any of my neighbours!

At this time of year, it’s always obvious when their gas boilers are running as great clouds of condensation pour out the flues on the side of their houses.

To me, it looks as if they seldom switch off, since I see the clouds every time I look out of the window, or walk along the street.

Yet everyone seems to plead poverty.

I wish I could turn mine on like them – I could probably have mine dumped for all the use it gets, but then again, I have to have it to hand in case things like The Beast from the East strike!

I wonder if this day is just a scam by ‘Energy Consultants’ and advisors?

After all, it’s pretty easy to cut your energy costs, just turn stuff off when not in use, use LED lighting, and don’t turn on stuff you don’t need in the first place. I’ll assume also that things like insulation are dealt with separately. Or, if you’re like me, you suddenly discovered there was no need for it – if you’re not bothering to use heating, you’ve nothing to ‘save’ by paying out for insulation!
