Domestic energy customers who want to save themselves money now that five of the Big Six energy suppliers have hiked prices should invest in energy saving lights.
According to Friends of the Earth, energy saving light bulbs are great value because they last ten times longer than the old bulbs and use three-quarters less energy to display the same amount of light.
Senior waste campaigner Michael Warhurst pointed out: "With electricity costs soaring, energy saving bulbs make more sense than ever - and they have dropped in price in the past few years."
He added: "The great news is that energy saving bulbs are recyclable, so we can re-use valuable materials and help keep prices down."
Householders can also compare energy tariffs online to find cheaper deals.
