WIN an OWL monitor for Father’s Day

Browse main article categories

owl-usb-computerI don’t know about the ‘Dad’ in your life, but Mr Green loves a gadget (aka boys toy) as a gift.

With Fathers Day coming up, it’s time to flex the plastic again on a gift to show you’re thinking of your Dad.

For the man who has everything, is trying to do the green thing and loves nothing better than buttons and electronic gadgets to play with, we have just the thing!

A while ago I reviewed the OWL electricity monitor on Little Green Blog and now those lovely people are offering two lucky people the chance to win an OWL+USB (RRP £40.95) for the Dads in their life.

The OWL monitor shows you, in real time, how much electricity you are using both in terms of power and cost. It challenges the ‘out of side, out of mind’ approach to consumption and makes sure you are aware, every minute of the day, just how much electricity you are using. This means you can see in real time the benefits of turning off electrical devices at home.

The information brings about behavioural changes which can help you save up to 20% on your electricity bill – so it’s a gift that keeps on giving to both the recipient and the environment.

Retaining all the features of the original OWL Wireless monitor, the OWL+USB has additional features including the ‘Track & Store’ function to track electricity usage via PC as well as a superior memory function and 2 year rolling memory capability.

To be in with a chance of winning, simply leave a comment below.

Winners will be selected at random in a week’s time, allowing us plenty of time to fly an OWL to you before Fathers Day! Open to UK residents only.

    I would love one of these, i’ve been trying to tell my housemates about how leaving lights on etc… waste electricity – this would be perfect to show them!



  2. joanne on June 11, 2011 at 7:15 pm

    This would be fab for my hubby, it would save him constantly patroling the house to check what our teenagers have left on in the other rooms!

    I need one of these so that I can show my teenage boys just how much electricity they are using by neglecting to turn off their computers/televisions when they fall asleep at night. If I can prove how much electricity they’re wasting they might become a bit more economical.

    An OWL electricity moniter would make his Fathers Day
    He likes to save money as he works hard for his pay
    Knowing what’s spent on ‘stand by’ would show him the way
    And any moneey saved would be mine to spend – HIP, HIP HORRAY!

    I would love one of these to make my children more aware of how much electric actually costs and hopefully make them use if more carefully!



  33. emma cella on June 12, 2011 at 6:32 pm

    This would be fab for my hubby, it would save him constantly walking around the house to check what our children have left on in the other rooms
