#PowerSwitch: Using less energy should feel good.
Start your #PowerSwitch.
With over 20% of CO2 emissions coming from home energy, you can see just why E.ON Next wants to encourage everyone to use less energy at home.
Let’s highlight the elephant in the room. It’s not about going short, far from it. We know people are more motivated to change their behaviour through positive rewards and not sacrifice, the question is how can we make energy-saving positive and a big win for you?
Well, we’re committed to helping the nation find unexpected benefits from energy reduction in a bid to make using less energy feel rewarding.
We call it PowerSwitch. It’s a shift in mindset and a way of using less whilst getting more in return, like Andrew, one of our E.ON Next customers. He decided to make some simple but significant changes to his energy use and discovered he was actually very good at it. You can read more about him.
Using less energy should feel-good.
Start your #PowerSwitch with Channel 4's Gogglebox stars Mica & Marcus.
E.ON Next partnered with Mica & Marcus and The Independent to help encourage families to feel good about reducing their energy consumption at home.
Our #PowerSwitch video series, in collaboration with The Independent, sees Mica, Marcus, Shuggy and Yash try alternative and feel-good ways to save energy.
^^ These are example figures only, based on standardised MCS calculations. Savings are based on property fitted with a south-facing solar array in central England on a roof with a 35-degree tilt and no shading, with electricity consumption of 4,800 kWh per year (with the customer at home all day), at a tariff rate of 27.3p/kWh. The solar array contains 12 x 405W panels (4.86 kWp) generating 4,544 kWh/year, fitted with a 5.2 kWh (4.2 kWh usable) battery.
