Nobody is too small to make a difference, and we can all do our bit to change the future of the planet. But with the climate crisis coming to a head, we all need to act and make the collective changes required to preserve the planet for future generations. So, here are ten simple things everyone can do to save the environment.
First of all, you need to know that technology gives the status to smart home technology, and it is mainly automation, and it comes from the idea of ambient computing.
Just before Christmas, we received an email from our energy suppliers E.ON informing us about the Smart Meter rollout that is happening across the UK. Between now and 2020 energy suppliers are offering households the opportunity to replace their current energy meters with Smart Meters. The change over to a Smart Meter will allow energy suppliers the opportunity to take meter readings digitally and provide more accurate energy bills. Partnered with an in-home display meter, householders are then able to track energy usage as well as the amount they are spending.
Having both myself and Mr. Boo been made redundant in the past we are now more than ever aware of how our financial situation can change. Having been reckless in the past with our budgeting we would like to think that we are in more control of our bills. One of the areas that we have been blind to is our energy usage. Although we have done the usual things like switch over to energy saving light bulbs etc. Our energy bills each quarter are still higher than we would like.
Unless you have been living under a rock, you will have caught one of the adverts for the Smart Meter roll out. Whether you’ve heard the radio advert in the car or vaguely recall seeing something as you waited for your favourite program to come on TV.
The short version of these adverts is that between now and 2020 energy suppliers are offering households across the UK the opportunity to switch over to a Smart Meter. Sounds great right? But what is a Smart Meter?
