Ed Sheeran’s whopping £30k electricity bill for his massive £4m mansion including pool, pub and recording studio | The Sun

ED SHEERAN'S whopping electricity bill has been revealed and it is A LOT more than yours.

Lighting-up the singer's £4 million mega mansion, including all 18 of its bedrooms, adds up to a staggering £30,383.


Ed's sprawling Suffolk estate, dubbed 'Sheeranville' as it features its own pub and numerous farmhouses, could be hit by the rocketing energy prices felt across the nation.

His massive abode also comes with a pool, recording studio, four-space garage, and wildlife pond.

The A-Team singer will need to fork out some of his £236 million fortune to keep the lights on – but he isn't the only celeb with a mammoth electricity bill to pay.

The priciest property in the nation is, unsurprisingly, Buckingham Palace.

With 240 bedrooms and 77,000 square metres of space – and more than 40,000 lightbulbs – the palace is estimated to cost a whopping £2.2m-a-year in energy bills this year, up from £1.3m last year.

Energy Chiefs at Uswitch have today advised Ed – as well as every other Brit – to start hanging washing out to dry rather than using a tumble drier to combat the rising prices.

They also recommended washing clothes at a lower temperature and closing windows to keep heat in.

Will Owen, energy expert at Uswitch.com, said: “While celebrities are being affected by soaring energy costs, the average person will be feeling the impact disproportionately worse, as bills make up a greater proportion of their income.

“Celebrity or not, there’s always a benefit to keeping down the amount of energy you use.

“It is more important than ever that people stay engaged with the energy market and sign up to alerts to inform them when better deals become available.

“If you're struggling with your energy bills, contact your supplier as soon as possible. It’s also worth checking what grants and schemes might be available to help cover your bills, particularly if you or someone you know is vulnerable.”

CUTTING COSTS

Follow these simple tips to slash your costly energy bills:

1 – Take advantage of the summer: While the weather is warmer you can dry your clothes outside on the washing line rather than using a tumble dryer.

2 – Turn the lights off: Longer days mean you will not need to have the lights for as long as you would in winter.

3 – Only use appliances when full: Washing machines and dishwashers can use a lot of energy, but if you only use them when they are full it will help you save energy, saving you money overall.

4 – Reduce the temperature on your washing machine: You can save energy by running colder washes in the washing machine. Washing your clothes at 30 degrees rather than 40 can reduce your washing bills by a third.

5 – Only use what you need: When boiling a kettle or cooking on the hob, only use as much water as you need as it will use more energy to boil the excess liquid.

6 – Check your freezer: You should keep an eye on your freezer to make sure it is not full of ice, as this will stop it from performing as efficiently.
