WIN an OWL electricity monitor

WIN an OWL electricity monitor

You may remember I was very impressed with the packaging my new OWL monitor came in. Now you have a chance to green your home this summer with an OWL Wireless Electricity Monitor as we have 5 to give away.

OWL, the electricity saving company, is offering readers of Zero Waste a chance to win an OWL Wireless Electricity Monitor RRP £34.99.

OWL, which has been given a Which? Best Buy status, not only saves money by helping to reduce unnecessary household electricity use but also helps save the environment by reducing your carbon footprint.

Start losing pounds off your energy bill by detoxing your household waste. Simply by attaching an OWL Wireless Electricity Monitor to your electricity mains supply, you can accurately gauge your energy usage to the exact pound and pence via a wireless LCD screen. The benefits of turning off a light or unplugging a device left on standby can automatically be seen on the monitor. The OWL Wireless Electricity Monitor is simple to use and requires no complex installation.

OWL also produces a range of energy saving devices so you can convert your house or business premises into being greener and cost efficient without having to renovate. Choose from power saving strips, computer hardware so you can really get under the skin of how green you are being at home and rechargeable batteries and chargers.

Start saving money today by saving the environment. Visit The Owl.

Simply answer the question below, to get your hands on an OWL Wireless Electricity Monitor.

What does the OWL help you reduce?

    We could make very good use of this in our Transition Town awareness raising activity, especially a project to save energy at our community theatre as an exemplar to the town.

    I’d love one of these – it would really help us understand where we’re still wasting electricity.
    Ought to just go and get one.
    Despite the fact we think we’re doing pretty well, I reckon the results might still shock us!
    Thanks for sharing this, Rae.

    Just wanted to say for those people who aren’t lucky enough to win (and there will be loads!) We got a free one of these from British Gas when we switched to giving them a monthly meter reading online and therefore paying them what we use monthly. Rather than a set amount each month which always left us way in credit at the end of the year with them getting the interest on the cash!

    It’s not an OWL one but it does the same job. You can set your electricity price so that you can see how much you’ve used in KW terms, in CO2 terms (although I need to do more research on how they’ve calculated this) and in price terms.

    So if you get gas or electricity or both from British Gas it might be worth looking into.
