Home energy usage

Monday, February 23, 2009

As someone about to lease an apartment for the first time, Google's Power Meter caught my eye. It's a new piece of software developed by Google to give users a near real-time view of your energy usage.
If you can't measure it, You can't improve it. - Lord Kelvin

The catch is, that your home requires one of the new smart meters in order to use the software. 40 million homes that don't currently have smart meters are slated to receive them, as mentioned in President Obama's stimulus plan. Regardless, the ability to personally monitor your energy usage is invaluable. Thank you, Google.
You can measure it, you can improve it - Google
So, who has, and who gets these new smart meters?
