On the pitch, securing a clean sheet is tough. Goalkeepers need to be focused, on the ball and thinking about what’s next. For some goalkeepers, defending the goal can feel automatic, just ask this season’s golden glove winners:
Championship: Mark Travers, Bournemouth - 20 clean sheets in 45 appearances
League One: Mike Cooper, Plymouth Argyle & David Stockdale, Wycombe Wanderers - 18 clean sheets in 46 appearances
League Two: Liam Roberts, Northampton Town - 21 clean sheets in 46 appearances
Off the pitch, goalkeepers need all the time they can get to train for those clean sheets. While you might not be training for a match at Wembley, a smart meter could make things a little easier and help you to defend your time with automated meter readings.
The smart meter automatically sends readings to your energy supplier, meaning you don’t need to be at home for someone to read your meter, or find the time to record and submit your meter readings. Another added bonus of a smart meter is that you will receive accurate and not estimated bills. Giving you fewer things to worry about. What a result!
Anita, a keen Sunderland supporter, told us “Our smart meter has been a hero in disguise for sure, never having to give meter readings as it is all done automatically saves us so much time and effort. Greatest invention ever!”
What are smart meters and how can they help you?
Smart meters record how much electricity or gas you use – just like your existing meters. But with a smart meter, you can also see how much energy you’re using in near real time, on an in-home display (IHD).
Having a smart meter also means getting a bill based on how much energy you used – not an estimate. This could take some of the guesswork out of balancing your budget.

Some homes can’t get a smart meter yet. Your energy supplier can tell you if you can have one and how soon it can be fitted.
