The cost of switching to green energy is more expensive than it was when the option was first introduced. If you can’t afford it then why not just save the money by doing without? How do we know if the energy you need isn’t cheaper?
When you look at the large scale of energy use, then you will find that most of the problems come from what’s called demand. The demand for energy can be very high. So the options to reduce demand are not so simple. What is happening is that the cost of the products that we have at home and in our offices has risen so much that it’s been reduced so much by our use of more efficient appliances and less power for our homes.
The simple truth is that we are getting poorer by the day as an economy gets deeper into recession. The price of oil has risen as much as double what it was a few years ago and other countries are cutting back on the number of coal-fired power stations they are building.
Oil costs will rise and other forms of energy will fall in price over the next few years, but they will be replaced by new forms of energy that are much more expensive. The cost of green energy has been falling, but our energy needs have only been growing. People who were unaware of the cost of their green energy bills until recently are now finding that they are paying a lot of money for green energy.
So where is the problem if you want to switch from a brown to a green energy bill? You can choose to use the traditional methods of doing things or the more cost-effective means of switching to green technology.
The big step for most people will be to make the switch to green technology. Some people will see this as too costly. The fact is that most of the other costs associated with switching to green energy are only on the end-user side.
Of course, there are higher prices involved for a lot of the newer and improved green energy. But you don’t need to spend hundreds of pounds a year on your electricity bill to do it. It’s easy enough to switch to green technology for an extra charge, and at least it will save you money on your bills!
What about a big switch such as switching a whole house to green technology? The option of using renewable energy to replace fossil fuels is going to be more expensive than using more traditional fossil fuels. This can be offset somewhat by how much cheaper the renewable technology is in the long run.
That doesn’t mean you should automatically jump straight to renewables after a big reduction in your energy costs. You need to do some research to find out about the different methods and how you can use them to reduce your electricity bill.
Ask your local council to help you set up a project for each room to use green technologies on a regular basis. Doing this will help the local authorities to get more benefit from the scheme, which is worth thousands of pounds for the government every year.
So if you think the cost of the technologies might be prohibitive for you to switch to, think again. You can still find a way to save money on your bills and it can be done using the advantages of green technology.
