Cost and energy-conscious households are being offered the chance to give their Christmas week energy usage the cold shoulder by winning the cost of their energy use over the festive period.

Enjoy a fabulous Christmas, deck the halls with lights, cook Christmas dinner and be warm, merry and bright as smart energy expert ivie offers three households the opportunity to win the cost of their Christmas week’s energy usage, from 25th- 31st December up to a maximum of £300. 

To be in with a chance of winning, households simply need to have an ivie Bud in-home display (IHD) and the free ivie app connected to their smart meter no later than 12pm on the 7th of December, to be automatically enrolled in the Festive giveaway.

Tens of thousands of UK households already belong to the ivie community and use the FREE ivie app, saving an average of 18% on their electricity use and 24% on their gas use each month.

The ivie Bud is the latest IHD that connects with a smart meter to show exactly how much energy is being used in real time. With its intuitive touch-screen design, daily, weekly, monthly or annual budgets can be set with just a few taps. Tracking, comparing and adjusting how energy is used is easy with the help of this stylish home addition that works with all energy suppliers.

Plus, when the ivie Bud is linked to the free ivie app, users can see their real-time energy usage from the comfort of their mobile phone.

Households without an ivie Bud need not worry about being left out in the cold. ivie is currently running its biggest sale of the year in time for Black Friday giving 20% off the ivie Bud (rrp £49.99) plus free delivery. The ivie energy saving app is free to download. 

Mike Woodhall, CEO of Chameleon Technology, creators of the ivie Bud and the ivie app, commented: “This year we wanted to give our growing community of ivie Bud users the chance to make the most of the festive period with all thoughts of energy usage and bills on the back burner, easing the cost of Christmas by saving their energy and money for the things they love instead.

“And for households that don’t have an ivie Bud, now is a great time to pick one up at its lowest ever price. So, as well as cutting future energy use and bringing bills down, there’s also the possibility of not giving a second thought to the Christmas week energy usage, traditionally one of the busiest and most expensive weeks of the year at home for many households and families.    

“As cost-of-living pressures continue to stretch household budgets, it is essential to improve our understanding of how we use energy in the home. The ivie app and the ivie Bud were created for this exact reason: to make understanding and managing energy simpler, smarter and more personal. Accurate, real-time energy data is crucial for achieving this. With live data, people can make smart energy-saving decisions on the spot that bring genuine change to how they use energy.”
