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:

Current Cost Efergy Energyhive Solar Diversion Dashboard

Diversion Dashboard
We are currently looking for beta testers for our new :

SMART Solar Power Diversion Dashboard

Primarily this exciting new energy monitoring and triggering dashboard, has been designed to send excess solar power on auto-pilot to appliances in the home connected via Wi-Fi Smart Plugs.

It makes more sense to use the power than send it back to the grid for little financial return.

To be included in our small selection of beta testers, you will either already have, or be willing to purchase energy monitoring equipment from us.

Compatible energy monitoring gateways / HUBs are Energyhive or Efergy with transmitters being Current Cost or Efergy.

Please contact our office to show your interest, by forwarding an email with the Subject "Beta Tester For Smart Solar Power".

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.
