    Xmas holidays are approaching so I get to go home but.... how do i power down my flat so that my electricity bill will be ZERO during December - January.
    - Is there a way to make sure that no electricity will be consumed?
    thank you.
    **** EDIT: I have to pay my electricity via : PAY AS YOU GO ******

    You could literally turn off all the mains power but you have to pay standing charges even if you use nothing.

    Thanks for the quick reply: I pay electricity via: pay as you go, so will it be different ?
    thanks
