Alternate Current Cost Energy Monitoring Dashboard

For those of you out there with a Current Cost energy monitoring system, we thought you may be interested in knowing there are alternatives to the old Current Cost dashboard.

After all the dashboard has not had any upgrades for years! So what about sending your energy data to an alternate energy monitoring dashboard? A dashboard where your data is shown not in 5 minutes time, but better still in REAL TIME!

You will need a new hub to replace the Current Cost bridge / gateway, that's all. This new hub will scan you home for Current Cost transmitters, where you simply name and add them to the dashboard. It's that easy, no more pairing!

There are two more important reasons this exciting change will appeal to you. Your data can be sent to PVOutput for detailed consumption and solar analysis. Futhermore your data can be sent to our SMART Solar Power monitoring dashboard. Where you can set up triggers to make sure you maximise any excess solar power export, by directing it to appliances within your home on autopilot, via WiFi smart plugs such as the Belkin WeMo.

So to summarise :

  • Your data now in 6 second realtime
  • Your data on PVOuptut
  • Your data on SMART SOLAR POWER with added home automation

Simply call us on 02 8064 3992 to switch over. All you need is one of our hubs.

Especially when it comes to monitoring solar power, where our SOLAR POWER MONITORING solutions are sought after because they :

  • Alert you of an expensive solar power inverter issue
  • Allow you to reduce imported / exported power
  • Allow you to see if your total consumption has risen since solar
  • Supply you with the data needed to correctly size batteries
  • Offer you additional alternatives such as SOLAR EXCESS DIVERSION

Is it not the time now to maximise the use of your generated solar power?

Let us work with you get you the data which you need to be in a position to make educated decisions to help you save off the power bill.

How To Get Your Electricity / Solar Power Online

It's not difficult to get your electricity consumption and solar power online these days.

Developments in the online energy monitoring industry over the last five years,  have provided some really nice energy saving features.

If you have been thinking of getting your home energy data online, then there is no better time than now.

Follow these 3 easy steps to getting your home energy data online.

  • Install power box transmitters onto your consumption and solar circuits. Add any other transmitters such as 10A socket transmitters and multi-sensors for temperature, light and motion.
  • Install a gateway HUB, with access to an online home energy monitoring dashboard. The HUB connects [via LAN] to your modem / router and scans your home for all transmitters. All of the transmitters can be named with additional data being added to the dashboard configuration.
  • Once the energy monitoring dashboard is live with all transmitters displaying data, the data can be pulled off the manufacturer's dashboard and onto other dashboards, or mobile applications across many platforms.

The list of alternate dashboards and mobile applications is increasing fast.

The benefit of most of the features is often the same. In that it helps you save quickly off your electricity costs, one way or another.

Far more successful than with no energy monitoring system installed. So if the time is right for you now, to install ENERGY MONITORING in your home visit our site for all the latest information.

3 Proven Easy Steps To Reducing Electricity Costs

After many years of performing HOME ELECTRICITY AUDITS in NSW, we would say this is NOT always the easiest, cheapest and most accurate way to reduce electricity costs.

Though we do realise the 'comfort factor' of having a power auditor in your home, can make you feel warm and fussy, knowing a solution at last is close by.

We would say you have a far better chance of reducing electricity costs quickly, when your action is based on accurate findings and facts. With years of offering electricity reduction services and products, the following three steps will get you a better end solution.

Our three steps to reducing electricity costs are solely based on findings and fact. The primary reason for our logics is simply accuracy of data! Data is easily skewed when you rely on:

  • Questions asked in the home based on the hours an appliance is used. With often varied answers from different parties

  • Varied power usage from appliances, where it is often far different from any appliance plate power rating

The reason we are asked to perform electricity audits is primarily to find answers to high electricity costs. Therefore one needs accurate methods to be in a position to supply that same data.

Therefore we would say you need to do the following:

  1. Get Your Meter And Bill Analysed : This will check the maths of the power bill and report usage patterns. Questions can then be asked and answered based on fact. When solar power is present the meter type can be questioned and checked
  2. Correct Electricity Tariff And Best Discount : Once we have performed step 1 we will know if you are on the correct tariff for your usage pattern. We will further know if you are using power in the best way to keep costs down. You may need to change tariff. Importantly what is your 'Pay On Time' discount? Why not let us see if we can get you 20%, 25% off your electricity bill?
  3. Install Simple Electricity Monitoring : Reporting in real time on how much power you are using over any time period. Making it easier for you to discover the real reason for power usage and costs. Later if you want more granularity for certain appliances, this is easily added.

All of the above three steps focus on data. Data that is either correct or not correct [the latter relating to electricity bill errors].

So if you are looking to reduce your electricity costs quickly, using a proven system that is cheaper than an electricity audit of your home, we would say you need to perform:

3 Easy Steps To Reduce Electricity Costs

Call us today on 02 8064 3992 to get the ball rolling.....

  • METER AND BILL ANALYSIS : Making sure you're on the correct tariff type to match your usage pattern and have the best discount.

  • ENERGY MONITORING SYSTEM : Supplying you with the data you need to remain aware and be in an educated position to make changes.

Check Your Energy Monitoring After A Net Meter Installation

This post is for those of you whom have, or those of you whom are looking at switching from a Gross feed in tariff electricity meter, to a Net meter. It is really important to make sure any Energy Monitoring consumption current clamps are relocated, after the net meter is installed. 

Otherwise you run the risk of your solar power feeding back through your consumption clamps. Thus your energy monitoring system will be supplying useless consumption data. Your consumption data will appear to follow the generation curve in most cases.

In most cases after the meter is changed, you will for sure NEED TO move the consumption current clamps. To change your consumption current clamps to a suitable location for net metering, please visit our SUPPORT page where we have two option for success. Both work 100%.

We are aware of a considerable number of homes in NSW, with incorrect current clamps for the consumption.

Best Electricity Discount For All Australians

Use Your Bargaining Power To Your Advantage
Bargain Your Best Power Deal
Did you know you can get up to 20% and MORE off your electricity usage and service fees? Well not everyone does, it appears.

Some of our METER AND BILLING ANALYSIS clients, are often getting 0% discount off their electricity bills.

These clients are on what is known as a standard agreement, with little discount. 

Great news for the electricity retailers, where the client is paying top dollar! What ever happened to the electricity retailer's Loyalty Officer?

It is the electricity retailer's 'market offers' that have the best discounts.

So what happens when you notice you have had little discount over the years and you could be saving far more? Well of course you are going to switch electricity retailers. As your existing retailer has not really done you to many favours up to this point.

Now before you jump ship, think about the bargaining power you have with your existing electricity retailer. If you are a big power user like some of our Sydney clients, then this Pay On Time discount, can even be bigger than what they advertise. 20% plus is a lot of money, especially when off a big power bill!

Big Electricity Bill Savings Are Possible
Play Your Cards Right To Win!
Bigger because when you mention the word SWITCH to your existing electricity retailer, their Client Retention Officer will be calling you 24/7 to keep your business. 

Now is the time you play one offer against the other and certainly give your existing retailer a hard time about the lack of loyalty they have so far shown. I mean they could have alerted you to the fact there were discounts! What could you have saved? Yes you are not happy!

Play your cards right and after a ten minute discussion you could get up to 28% discount with a $100 credit off your next bill. 

We have a few METER AND BILLING ANALYSIS clients receiving well over 20%.

Remember no electricity retailer wants you to jump ship! And there lack of loyalty in the past is your prime bargaining chip!

Good luck!
