Electricity Monitoring

Electricity monitoring systems support simple monitoring tasks as well as more complex tasks, such as power trending, controlling, and identification of sources of energy consumption and load profiles of power supply segments. They allow cost allocation, and further reduction of energy costs can be carefully targeted to specific equipment. Energy monitors are small devices that help you discover how much energy you're using in your home. They show you how much money your energy consumption is costing you, and will tell you how much money you're saving once you begin to change the way you're using energy. Energy monitoring and targeting is primarily a management technique that uses energy information as a basis to eliminate waste, reduce and control current level of energy use and improve the existing operating procedures. Why Do Monitors Help? For most us, electricity is invisible, and utility bills are at best cryptic, and at worst complete mysteries. Energy monitors make electricity use tangible - rather like a thermometer makes the air temperature visible. And like a thermometer, a monitor does not reduce electricity use on its own - it simply prompts a response from you. If it's cold outside, you throw on gloves. If your monitor displays a spike in electricity use, you find out why and turn some energy hog in the house off.


What Energy Monitors do:   

Help you locate things that are always on, even when they aren't doing anything. Help you notice that the kids forgot to turn off the TV. Help you become aware of how electricity is used.

What Energy Monitors prompt us (homeowners) to do: 1. Understand what goes on when we use electricity in our houses. 2. Pay attention to our usage and reduce it. Energy monitors – what do they do? Energy monitors are simple handheld or tabletop gadgets that give you an estimate of the amount of electricity you are using in real time. They are also known as home energy monitors, electricity monitors and electricity usage monitors. Widely available, they cost around £40 (or free from some energy suppliers) and you can install them yourself. Most energy monitors allow you to view your real-time electricity usage in units of energy used (kWh), cost or carbon emissions. Some have additional features, such as allowing you to set daily electricity usage targets or alarms to alert you when you have used a set amount of electricity. Energy monitors are designed to help you keep track of your electricity usage, discover how using different appliances affects your energy bills and, ideally, help you to cut your electricity consumption. How do energy monitors work? Most energy monitors are made up of three parts: a handheld display, a transmitter and a sensor. The sensor clips on to a power cable connected to your electricity meter box. This monitors the magnetic field around the power cable to measure the electrical current passing through it (amps). Once you’ve attached the transmitter to the sensor, it will send the information wirelessly to the handheld visual display unit, where it will be re-calculated and displayed as real-time power usage (in kWh), cost and greenhouse gas emissions (tonnes of CO2).
