ENVI Energy Monitor

April 7, 2010

The energy monitor arrived today!

I resisted installing it straight away and sat and worked it out over a cup of tea. I even read the instruction manual!

Interestingly, it described in detail what to get the qualified electrician to do in order to install the sending device on the mains power cable in the switch board. So much so in fact that the qualified electrician seemed a little redundant!

Once installed it appears to be all in order and telling us we are using way too much power. I can’t work out how to change the rate per KWHr for the the actual cost calculations, but I’m sure the suppliers will provide some instruction there.

It will be interesting to compare the difference once the solar hot water system is installed next month. Stay tuned.
