A smart monitoring system allows you to see your energy usage which helps to identify ways to decrease energy use.

FACT:

Monitoring energy use and power generation helps to understand where energy is being used in the home.

Smart Monitoring

There are a number of energy monitoring devices that can help you track and monitor energy usage. These start from around $40 for a simple power socket plug-in device that will tell you how much an appliance is using to $400 for a device that can monitor “real time” energy usage from the kitchen bench. There are also systems that can be integrated into a new build that can monitor every appliance independently.

The system allows you to better understand how much power your family uses and provides real-time data on energy use which can be used to track your improvements over time.

Talk to your builder about options for management/installation of off peak electricity metering which may offer on-going savings.
