In a totally asinine manner, First Utility, a power supply company here in the UK, has suggested some ways for customers who are worried about paying their bills to cut back.

This is a company that raised their prices by 18%.

They advise their customers to:
  • Share showers
  • Go without hot drinks twice a week
  • Turn off the TV and play board games
  • Use the microwave more instead of cooking real food
  • Go to bed early two nights a week to stay warm
They are advocating the 5:2 energy diet, ‘fasting’ on energy usage two days a week in order to reduce bills. Following their plan could save customers £154 a year.
