I love seeing easily in an app how much I'm spending on electricity as it gives me the option to reduce my usage. The ability to pre-purchase packs is also a big plus rather than getting a big bill at the end of the month. The funny specials...
I love seeing easily in an app how much I'm spending on electricity as it gives me the option to reduce my usage. The ability to pre-purchase packs is also a big plus rather than getting a big bill at the end of the month. The funny specials they do are great, often doing promotions for Kanye's Birthday, the death of Microsoft Paint, or Game of Thrones etc. They make it entertaining to manage your electricity, which is something I thought I'd never say. Highly recommend them!
