Home Energy Management for consumers is a relatively new area, but it is widely accepted that by giving consumers visibility of their home energy use and cost they can achieve savings of between 15% and 25% on their energy bills by identifying waste and more efficient ways to use their home appliances. For example; the Energy Saving Trust estimates that we waste electricity to the tune of over £900 million a year through appliances left on standby.” : Buy a MeterOther Home Power Monitoring Alertnatives

  1. “Meter Pal, a single input for all of meter readings, electricity and Gas, Water” sounds very interesting, I wonder what we will be able to do with it? Something I have thought about recently is trying to mod the clamp to count the pulses from both my gas and electricity meter.

    Maybe this will be the answer?

  2. Im not keen on all these inaccurate systems being used as source data for shared stuff like google power meter.

    If you cant get an accurate wattage allowing for voltage shifts and power factor then dont publish it to the web IMO.

  3. Is it just me or do other people think these things are still too expensive to invest in?

    Depends how seriously you pay attention to what the meter is saying, over the last few weeks I’ve halved my consumption of electricity simply by paying attention to the meter and turning appliances off and noting the effect over time, I’ve more than covered the cost of the current cost meter I’ve been using in the first months savings alone. Due to the 24 hr, 7 day and 30 day consumption figures, you get a very good idea of the trend, presumably Google Powermeter would provide this info.

    Ok, the data is inaccurate, for me it’s around 1-2 Kw out per day, this doesn’t matter as it’s the trends that you need to watch.
