E.ON UK plc Partners with OPOWER, Inc. to Launch Saving Energy Toolkit

E.ON UK plc has partnered with OPOWER, Inc. to launch the Saving Energy Toolkit, a solution which will help the customers to understand and transform their home energy usage. Available to E.ON customers, the online Saving Energy Toolkit provides an insightful analysis of a household's energy use, including where and when energy is being used with a breakdown of costs and information on how they compare to other customers in their local area. The tool compares a household's electricity and/or gas use with around 100 anonymous E.ON customers with homes of a similar size and type, and against the most energy efficient homes in their local area. It also provides comparisons of how each household's energy use stacks up to these homes in order to encourage positive behavioural change and represents information in simple graph comparisons so people are able to easily identify where they can make energy savings.

E.ON UK plc Ceases Operations at Coal-Fired Kingsnorth Power Plant

E.ON UK plc has ceased commercial generation at its 1,940-MW Kingsnorth coal-fired power plant. The closure was originally announced March 8. Decommissioning of Kingsnorth is set to be done in preparation for the plant's formal closure on March 31, 2013. The plant closure is the result of the European Union's Large Combustion Plant Directive legislation, which required it to close after generating for 20,000 hours after January 1, 2008, if the company did not opt to retrofit the plant with pollution controls. The power station was commissioned in 1970.
