I, Chris Tremblett, promise to hire a free energy SMART meter
Potential savings could be 7,000 Sheffield AFC leather footballs full of CO2 and £18 per year
Advice to help you fulfil your promise
The Smart Meter is a little gadget that shows the electricity that household things like kettles, TVs, computers, phone chargers, etc. are using when they are on. The meter also shows how much these devices use when you think they are turned off on “standby”, and you may be surprised by how much energy they consume. You can save around £20 year by using this free to borrow gadget. The Smart Meter is simple to use and can be borrowed for 3 weeks at a time.
The meters can be borrowed from all Sheffield libraries for free for 3 weeks. This should be long enough to show you what items in your house are wasting you energy. If your local library has loaned out all of its meters you can put your name on a waiting list. Please note that like all items from the Library, if the smart meter is damaged, lost or not returned it must be paid for. Joining the library

Consumer electronics account for around 35% of your electricity bill, with that figure expected to rise. If you need to buy a new appliance look for the energy saving recommended logo.
Choose integrated appliances, such as a TV and DVD combined as it generally takes less energy to make one integrated item than 2 separate ones. Switch appliances off properly at the mains as they can use almost as much energy on standby as when in use.
