British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak is considering various options for launching an information campaign in the run-up to Christmas to encourage Britons to use less energy at a time when the government is paying tens of billions of pounds to cap gas and electricity prices.

As reported Financial Timesaccording to Sunak, some households could save up to £500 a year, cutting their energy bills by 15%, if they were more careful with their appliances.

The government believes that with the help of the simplest measures, such as turning off boilers and turning off electrical devices during the day, the country can save a lot of electricity. The Committee on Climate Change said that just by advising households to close the curtains at night to keep the heat in, the Treasury could save between £7m and £34m.
