Top 10 Green Energy Devices That Will reduce your Monthly Bills


Top 10 Green Energy Devices That Will reduce your Monthly Bills

Saving energy is high up on the global agenda and there are a number of new technological developments that could help to slash your energy bills and reduce the size of your carbon footprint. Here is a roundup of gadgets and gizmos that will ensure you get the thumbs up from Mother Nature:

1. Enviroplug

Energy sources such as wind, water and sunlight are increasingly being harnessed as an alternative source of energy to fossil fuels. You can use the sun’s rays to charge your mobile for free using this nifty device. Simply plug the device into your phone charger and it will automatically let you know when your battery is full.

2. Micro solar panels

These provide power to 12 Volt vehicle batteries, phones, iPods and solar AA/AAA battery chargers from 0.3 W-10 W.

3. Water pressure powered radio

Singing in the shower will never feel as environmentally friendly as when you are blasting out tunes on the H2O Shower Radio. The device uses a turbine generator and the latest miniature water turbines to create free energy.

4. Programmable thermostats

Programmable room thermostats allow homeowners to control the temperature settings in their homes, so that energy wastage is minismised.

5. Black & Decker thermal leak detector

It is estimated that the average home can attribute 20% of its energy loss to draughts. Homeowners simply need to set the detector’s temperature tolerances to one, five, or 10 degrees and scan the light across the area they want to monitor. The device will indicate red for warmer spots and blue for colder spots, and can do this all year round regardless of weather conditions. The detector also displays temperatures in either Fahrenheit or Celsius on the LCD screen.

6. Energy saving light bulbs

You could save £45 a year on your electricity bills when you replace ordinary light bulbs with energy saving ones. Some supermarkets are offering these eco light bulbs for under a pound, so it is well worth making the change.

7. Water tank jacket

Adding a jacket of minimum thickness of 75mm could make you savings of between £15 and £20 per year and cut energy loss by 70%.

8. A-rated energy appliances

Energy efficiency ratings go from A to G and buying a fridge freezer, washing machine, dryer, dishwasher or other appliance that bears the highest rating will ensure that energy is used sparingly. It is estimated that if each individual in the UK upgraded their wet appliances (washing machines, dishwashers) to Energy Saving Recommended models, it would save around 1.3 million tonnes of CO2 and nearly £250 million a year.

9. Radiator foil

We all know foil is an insulator and you can ensure that heat doesn’t escape from the back of your radiator by using this nifty device. This is expected to make a cost saving of £8 a year per radiator. Those who aren’t afraid of a little DIY can attempt to make their own homemade version using cardboard, tin foil and sticky tape.

10. Eco Button

Leaving your computer idle when you are away from your desk will mean that you are wasting energy unnecessarily. Use this illuminating USB device which will prompt you to press it in order to put your computer into energy saving mode. This could save you between £50 and £100 on your electricity bills each year.
