Powwow water

Use any energy-saving settings available on your washing machine

Washing the right way | Energy saving

You could cut up to a third off your running costs by using an efficient machine. If you are looking to buy a new washing machine go for an energy efficient model. Washing machines are efficiency graded, with G being the lowest (most energy used) and A being the best (least energy used).

You will generally find that the more expensive machines are the most efficient and have a higher grading, but spending a little more could save you a lot extra in the long run.

The highly graded machines tend to include many extra settings, such as a timer delay allowing you to use cheaper overnight electricity, and variable temperature controls so you can use a lower temperature for lightly soiled loads. Other machines incorporate a pressure switch mechanism and automatically use the correct amount of water, and many have a half load facility for small quantities of laundry.

These features will all help you to save energy and money by utilising the electricity and water used to clean your clothes.

The first Hampshire Water Festival took place in August 2015 in Winchester and was a great success with 10,000 visitors.

The Hampshire Water Partnership was formed in 2001 and is composed of a wide range of organisations who are stakeholders in water in Hampshire. Its main aim is to ensure the long term future of Hampshire’s rivers, aquifers and wetlands for people and wildlife. see www.hampshirewaterfestival.co.uk. The Hampshire Water Partnership was established in 1999 to foster increased understanding and knowledge-sharing about Hampshire’s water environments and the issues facing rivers, wetlands and aquifers. It comprises private, public and voluntary bodies who have a role or interest in the sustainable management of this unique water environment. The Partnership has no executive powers, but provides a forum for closer working relationships, information dissemination, and discussion on topical issues.
