From April, a single 100w light running for a year, at price cap electricity costs, would cost you £240. Is it just me that finds this scary?

Totally agree, but it was a very powerful message to discuss the radical idea of not leaving lights, computers and televisions on all the time! It's just a light bulb, after all!
A "friend" took great pleasure in working out how much it cost me. At today's energy prices it would be about £650 (eek!).
Indeed, the greatest waggage I have it probably that 1 halogon in the hall (50w?). I never use it and the only reason it exists is becuase I am too lazy to choose and put up a new fitting. Beyond that there are 2 16w leds in the loft (I think 16w, whatever was taround the 150w equivalent anyway!).
2.72kWp PV facing SSW installed Jan 2012. 11 x 247w panels, 2.5kw inverter. 28MWh generated, long-term average 2.6 Os.
Really good point. I think it will. Climate change is far less tangible than an direct debit going up by 100%, also you as an individual have direct and measurable control over reducing your bill, not so much for global emissions. This may be the compelling reason to act than many of us need?
