Smart Meters

We could all do with an assist as good as this sometimes

19 October 2022

In an age of stats and analysis, assists reign supreme. They are now often viewed as a crucial aspect of an attacking player’s overall performance and give an indication of how important they are for the team.

In the Sky Bet Championship, Sorba Thomas at Huddersfield Town is leading the way for assists with six. In Sky Bet League One, it’s Jevani Brown at Exeter City with seven, and in Sky Bet League Two, Barrow’s Ben Whitfield is on six assists, joint with Carlisle United's Jordan Gibson. It remains to be seen who may start to break away from the pack.  

Having a teammate on your side to provide these pinpoint assists is a joy for strikers and fans alike.

And it’s not just on the pitch that assisting is important. When it comes to your energy bills, any assistance you can get to keep them under control is welcomed right now. 

That’s where smart meters can help. 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, on an in-home display.

The in-home display is sometimes called an IHD. It comes with the smart meter, and can help you keep a closer eye on how much energy you’re using, and how much it’s costing you. This can enable a little extra help to stay on top of your energy use. 

For Philip, who is a Walsall fan, the in-home display has been a great support:

The easy-to-read in-home display was a real eye-opener in terms of being able to monitor our day to day expenditure. It is a handy reminder to turn off appliances and lights that are not in use.”

Another benefit of a smart meter is that it automatically sends readings to your energy supplier, meaning you get a bill based on the amount of gas and electricity you used.

Callum, a Wigan supporter, says: It helps me keep on top of my energy bills on a daily basis and look at how much Im using rather than just looking at my bill at the end of the month dreading what I'm going to read, it helps keep a lid on certain usage and just generally makes the whole process a lot easier with a smart meter. Don't know what I'd do without it.”

Join the likes of Philip and Callum. Ask your energy supplier for a smart meter or search ‘get a smart meter’ today.
