How to save electricity at home

At Homebase, we've made sure to include an array of low-cost, energy-efficient and great value options to help protect the planet while saving you a few pounds. To find out how much electricity an appliance uses, take a look at the packaging or product description. Find the wattage (power) or kWh (how much power a device uses each hour) consumption. If you are only given the wattage, divide by 1000 to find the kWh consumption - for example, a 120 watt device uses 0.12kWh. 

You'll also need to check how much your energy supplier charges per kWh of electricity. From this, you'll be able to work out how much the appliance costs to run. Take a look at our guide to understanding energy ratings on kitchen appliances for more advice on how to keep your electricity consumption low.
