2nd place:

Laura Gardiner

Laura made us laugh with her entry - 'Alexa, out of Siri (iphone), Bixby (Samsung) and Cortana (Windows) which one would you shag, marry and kill' ๐Ÿ˜‚

3rd place:

Andrew Redman

It was great to see a lot of selfless questions and humanitarian requests from our customers. Andrew came up with the eternally sweet request for Alexa 'to help save all the homeless cats'

How did we pick the winners?

All winners were randomly drawn from a shortlist of the best answers. We got loads of great entries ranging from the selfless and sweet to the morally ambiguous (think: night-time brainwashing).

Sorry if you missed out on a prize this time. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to be in the know about future competitions.

During the super hot summer we saw records breaking for solar energy generation. In fact, in June, our investors Octopus Investments were the biggest solar energy generators in the whole of the UK - a quarter of a million MegaWatt hours - 254,857 MWh, thatโ€™s enough to power a smart fridge freezer for 497,000 years! ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ˜ฒ - or 1 Million households for the month.

How to enter...

1) Answer the question:

If the possibilities were endless, what's the first thing you'd ask your virtual assistant to do?

2) Tag the person you'd call to help you set up all the new gadgets if you win.

Note: This giveaway is for our customers only, so if you're not going 100% green with us yet, get involved for future giveaways.

Thanks to our friends...

Without our friends offering gifts for the competition we would not be able to offer such a fantastic reward.

We very occasionally get asked 'if we can afford these prizes why don't we just lower everyone's bills. The answer is simple. We're often gifted some of these prizes by brushing shoulders with those in the tech industry, sure we spend a little bit of money on the prizes but it really is just a little bit. We're very transparent about our pricing and we keep our prices low for our customers. We have spent over ยฃ1000 on the tech bundle prize. For a single individual this is a lot of money but we have over 200,000 customers. We could split the ยฃ1000 between all 200,000 of them (they'd get half a penny each) but that's not as exciting as a competition like this!

We're always open to your ideas for future competitions, so don't hesitate to drop us a message with your suggestions.

Love and Power!
