No reduction in island energy use

People in Jersey are still using the same amount of energy despite campaigns to be more energy efficient and an increase in fuel prices.

In 2008 a total of more than two million megawatt hours of energy was used in Jersey, a similar figure to the previous year.

The Environment Department said it was surprised by the figures.

But it said winter was very cold and that could mean people were forced to turn up their heating.

In April the States and Jersey Electricity launched an energy efficiency scheme, with grants of £1.5m available to elderly people and those on low incomes in Jersey.
