An Introduction

28% of Reading’s emissions come from domestic gas, used primarily as a heating fuel. Another 12% comes from domestic electricity. Reducing energy consumption cuts both carbon emissions and costs so it’s a win for you and for the climate.

With a few simple changes, you can reduce your environmental impact and improve the comfort of your home. Some measures might involve some up-front cost, but this can be recouped through future savings on energy.
