The Envi a simple yet powerful device uses two sensors that surround the home’s incoming main power cables, and wirelessly sends energy usage information to a display that sits on the kitchen counter. The display shows both the real time energy usage in Dollars and Watts. It also stores the data allowing households to see how much energy they have used in the past.
By continuously updating total energy usage in real time, users can see the effect of turning on and off appliances, lights and other devices. This knowledge then allows users to make informed decisions on what they are spending their energy Dollars on and allows them to reduce energy wastage.
Now as a featured device partner with Google PowerMeter, the Envi can send the energy information online to Google PowerMeter, a free online service from Google. Users can now monitor their electricity usage anywhere and anytime.
“Europe is far ahead of the US when it comes to deployment of this type of technology,” says Leoni Pearl, President of PowerSave, ”we believe that when US households learn of the benefit that home energy monitors provide, that adoption will grow rapidly”. Google PowerMeter will play a great part in fostering this growing awareness. “Being able to view your homes energy consumption from work or on your mobile device users will gain an unprecedented level of control over their energy usage”.
Current Cost estimates that their customers have already saved close to 400,000 tons of CO2 through monitoring their electricity use. One Australian restaurant recently learned that something as easy as turning off their coffee pots each night would save them $3,000 dollars per year.
