One of the biggest issues in determining electrical consumption in the home is our lack of information about where power is being used. If you can find the ‘worst offenders’ on your list of loads, you can strategize how best to conserve. Often overlooked, conservation is one of our greatest tools when trying to create our own energy independence. I recently discovered a great new product that helps home and small business owners play electron detective and find out where their power is going. ‘Neurio’ has created a hardware/software tandem that allows you to easily and inexpensively get granular data about which appliances and loads are causing the most pain on your electricity bill.
