Green Christmas gifts: 5 smart energy buys for the tech fan in your life

Minim+ electricity monitor 

We don’t know about you, but we think our Minim+ energy monitor is the perfect stocking filler size! Our best-selling electricity monitor has an easy-to-read display to help make light work of seeing and understanding your home energy use habits.

Not only does it show both real time and historic energy use data, Minim+ also alerts you to any unusual patterns in your energy use. What’s more, it’s also really quick and easy to install – thanks to its CT clip sensor.

Solo II PV solar energy monitor

Why not treat the solar fan in your life to our Solo II PV solar monitoring system? With its full-colour screen Solo II PV helps you find out more about your home generation – along with helping you use as much of your generated solar power as possible by showing when the best times to switch your appliances on are.

Want to view your solar energy data in more depth? Our energynote online data service (fully supported by Solo II PV) will help you do just that.

Cosy smart thermostat and smart plugs

If the person you’re buying for already has a Cosy smart thermostat (pssst be quick and you can get one for free with this limited edition First Utility offer) then we think one of our Cosy-compatible smart plugs would make the perfect present for them.

That way (thanks to Cosy’s unique Welcome Home feature) next time their heating switches on, the fairy lights on their Christmas tree will switch themselves on too. Talk about a Cosy Christmas!

Solo II home energy monitor

The Solo II electricity monitor is our complete-view, in-home display that shows exactly how much energy you’re using – in as much detail as you’d like to know.

Thanks to its easy-to-read, colour display (showing real-time and historic energy data) your giftee will be to tell you exactly how much energy cooking the turkey has used this Christmas – along with the carbon cost of your roast dinner and how much this energy expenditure has eaten into their budget. Bon appetite!
