Got an iOS or Android smartphone or tablet? Here’s the lowdown on why you should download the Powershop mobile app.
1) It can save you power
Knowledge is power. With the usage insights the app gives you, knowledge can lead to using less power. See when you’re using the most power and work out where you can cut back.
2) It can save you money
If you use less, you pay less. But that’s not the only way the app can help you save money. With push notifications enabled, we’ll send you an alert every time a new power special hits the shop. So you can pick up savings from your pocket on the train, in the pub, wherever you are.
3) It has special bonus features
If you’ve got a smart meter, you can drill down to see your daily usage in half-hour increments.
You can add notes to keep track of usage spikes. See how much power your in-laws chewed through when they came to stay. Read all about it.
If you don’t have a smart meter, the app makes it really easy to enter your own meter reads. You can even turn on a torch if it’s dark.
4) It can make buying power fun
Keeping the green circle (power bought) ahead of the pink circle (power used) is pretty addictive. It becomes a game. Someone described it as being like Tinder for power, but we couldn’t possibly comment on that!
5) You can try it, and test it
Not ready to take the plunge? You can download the app (did we mention it’s free?) and play with the demo to see how it all works – even if you’re not yet a Powershop customer.
You can also become one of our beta testers on Android or iOS and try out new versions when they are available. Find out more here.
