Google with Current Cost “offer a new way for many more people to access Google PowerMeter. Having already sold one million energy monitoring devices, Current Cost will now offer devices that’re compatible with Google PowerMeter. They’ll also offer upgrades to existing customers so that they too can monitor their energy consumption anywhere online with our software. Devices that integrate with Google PowerMeter will first be available in North America, UK, Australia and New Zealand. Current Cost uses Google PowerMeter API and joins others as a Featured Device partner that allows customers to understand their energy use. Our partnership is another example of hardware meeting our software to help customers save energy and money. E.ON, one of the UK’s largest utilities, has also teamed up with Current Cost to offer its customers a Google PowerMeter compatible energy monitor as part of its free “Energy Fit Starter Pack.”,” writes Google.
Current Cost estimates that their customers have already saved close to 400,000 tons of CO2 through monitoring their electricity use.
