Are you tired of waiting for your local utility to install smart meters to help you monitor your power usage?
If lots of people start to track their usage and then somehow combine their data using the Internet, interesting things may start to happen.
In the meantime, your household will benefit from the so-called Prius effect whereby the simple act of monitoring usage causes a reduction. The TED 5000 will probably pay for itself in a year or two.
Then there’s the issue of who owns your electricity usage data. That’s right, some utilities think they own your data. We’ll let Google fight that one.
