Learn About The Electrisave Home Wireless Electricity Use Monitor

Aug 17, 2007
Have you ever wondered how you can really make a difference to the world we live in. Have you seen on television the damage being caused by climate change and wished you could do something about it, but you weren't sure where to start or how you could make changes that would work?

After researching Energy Saving on the Internet I could not believe what was possible, but none of the savings were quantifiable none of them were measurable everybody was making power saving claims, some of which were very hard to believe. I wondered how to make sense of the vast array of information and remembering from my 23 years in Management how important it is to measure the results.

I also wanted to be able to involve the Family in my power saving efforts, after all they lived in the house too and without their help it would be an uphill struggle to make any savings! From my research I knew that the main area to concentrate on was Electricity use as this was likely to produce the best savings. Several obvious ways came to mind, switching off the lights, not leaving devices on standby, full dishwasher and washing machine washes only, and many more.

I learned that saving just 1p an hour equates to about 87.60 GBP a year, while the average household could in fact save up to 200 GBP a year or more by taking simple energy efficiency measures. Then I discovered the Electrisave Domestic Electricity Monitor. This simple display will give you all the information you need to monitor your Electricity usage and with no electrician required for installation it could not be simpler. All that is required to start taking readings is to clip the receiver to your incoming Electricity cable, connect it to the Transmitter, Mount the wireless remote Receiver and that's it. Your Electricity Monitor in 3 Minutes maximum.

This energy-efficient "Electrisave" device shows you how much electricity you are using, how much you may be wasting and how much harmful CO2 you are contributing to greenhouse effects. This information allows you to make lifestyle changes and become intelligent about your energy usage. And the result? You save money.

But that's only half the story. Having fitted the "Electrisave" and recorded some data I then wanted to see if I could make some savings, I worked out my daily use for weekdays and weekends and then tried the obvious, switching off the lights, not leaving devices on standby, full dishwasher and washing machine washes only, Etc. To my surprise there was a measurable 25% saving on energy used!
