Even by making small improvements such as using an electricity monitor, energy efficient light bulbs fitting or fitting a smart meter, can make a difference, while bigger innovations, such as installing solar panels are a viable investment for the future.

npower encouraged homeowners to pay a visit to its stand at the Ideal Home Show during Climate Week to find out how to make their homes more energy efficient and better manage their impact on the environment.
Exhibiting at the show for a third year, npower showcased the latest eco-friendly home technology developments including electric vehicle technology, solar energy (http://www.npower.com/Home/Energy-efficiency/Solar/index.htm ) panels and the company's green energy (http://www.npower.com/Home/Energy-efficiency/Green-energy/index.htm ) tariff.
Centre of the stand was a Tesla, the fastest electric vehicle in existence, along with home and city charging points for electric vehicles.
Nicola Hadcroft, creative services manager at npower, commented: "Climate Week is all about highlighting the innovative technology that is coming to the market to help make homeowners' lives easier. The Ideal Home Show was the perfect place to showcase what npower is doing to make a difference.
"By encouraging people to become more engaged with their energy usage and as a supplier helping them to achieve this, we can work towards a more sustainable future and help homeowners tread more lightly on the planet.
"Even by making small improvements such as using an electricity monitor, energy efficient light bulbs fitting or fitting a smart meter, can make a difference, while bigger innovations, such as installing solar panels are a viable investment for the future."
Homeowners who are not looking to install new products in their home, but still want to play their part can also sign up to npower's green energy tariffs including npower Juice and npower's National Trust Green Energy.
Both tariffs match the amount of electricity you use with electricity generated from 100% renewable sources. This is then then fed back into the grid. The tariffs cost the same as standard electricity and are just one of the ways homeowners can participate in the increase of the development of renewable energy sources by increasing demand.
npower has 6.5 million residential gas and electricity accounts throughout the UK. npower is a market leader in renewable energy. npower juice matches green energy primarily from off-shore wind farms for juice customers at no extra cost. Customers can join the energy industry discussion on npower's interactive debating website, The Brighter Energy Debate, where customers can post questions, views and comments.
Npower is also responsible for the Climate Cops (http://www.climatecops.com/ ) programme which helps schools across the UK to become greener and more sustainable and shows young people how they can take a lead in being greener at home and school through interactive and engaging activity events, websites and free teaching resources.
