Save energy in the home

Rising energy bills are affecting many people in Islington. Our Energy Advice Team can help you to keep your energy bills as low as possible by supporting you to take simple actions to minimise the cost and help your home become more energy efficient in the long term.

Don’t forget you can also do plenty of things that don’t cost anything and help you to save money such as not leaving appliances on standby, using your washing machine or dishwasher at a lower temperature, only filling the kettle with as much water as you need and plenty of others.

For an overview of all Islington Council’s work towards home energy efficiency, see our 2017 HECA Progress Report.
