GET REAL TIME ACTUAL CONSUMPTION

I have bought this product:

Item ECM-1220 Plus. It's pricey, but you can get actual consumption right off the line. Nice thing is it's not fixed, which means I can take it to other's homes, connect to their computer, and get real data on actual consumption.

The very tool we need for the suit.

  1. Hi Richard, Have you looked into the TED products? You have some great info. I do not have my meter as of this post. I am going to spreadsheet my bills and Pray for the best.

  2. I'm just outside Guelph, have a smart meter and a TED 5000 unit. I've had the TED unit since mid Feb and I've just checked my bills against it. So far my Smart Meter is pretty accurate it seems, however, my bill is madness... the delivery charge is nearly the price of the electricity usage! (my average bill is around $420 a month because in winter its mostly over $700).

  3. Hi Guelph, Are you happy with the cost and features of the TED 5000?

  4. Joe, I'm going to do a post about monitoring devices in the next few days. Thanks for the link.

    Another 8% going to be added to our bills come July, thanks to McLiar.
