Leisure Energy’s 12 energy saving tips for Christmas:

2. Put your lights on a timer – at the office or home, don’t leave them on when not required

3. Buy gifts without batteries or electricity usage – go for those traditional presents

4. Use Fibre Optic Decorations -trees and decorations are the ultimate in hashtagenergyefficiency. Most use a single bulb
