Blenheim Estate has launched a local energy impact scheme for its tenants and the wider Oxfordshire community to help households keep track of their energy use and as a collective, reduce their energy consumption.
Follow these easy steps to making these savings:
1) Book your smart meter installation! Before you can make a positive change, you need to know how much energy you are using – and what it costs. Did you know that whether you are a tenant or a homeowner, you must arrange your own installation by contacting your energy supplier? It is quick and easy to do.
2) Sign up to Loop. Join the local scheme and download the Loop app to link to your newly installed smart meter.
3) The Loop app analyses your smart meter data and shows you easy ways to use less energy, save money and cut your carbon footprint. On average, Loop users cut their energy use by 10%!
4) By joining the scheme you also have the opportunity to earn rewards through Turn Down and Save events, just by reducing your energy use during specific hours. In fact, you could receive £2.50 for every less kilowatt hour that you use, compared to your normal usage.
There are countless other benefits to signing up to Loop and joining the scheme, which you will discover as you become familiar with the app. The scheme isn’t just for people who live in a Blenheim property, we have opened the scheme up to residents in Bladon, Combe, Freeland, Long Hanborough, Stonesfield, Woodstock and Wootton, so that as a wider community we can work together to have a positive impact on the environment.
