Real Time Feedback

The PowerCost series provides electricity reading information in real time. This helps make you aware of how your activities affect your usage. It also shows you your cost right now so you know when your rates are high. Just knowing what you use can save you 10% or more on your electricity bills.

VIEW TRENDS

With up to 13 months of history available you can see trends in your electricity usage to help you confirm your actions are resulting in savings. See your past usage in dollars-and-cents or kilowatt-hours right down to the hour. See a breakdown of how much your “phantom load”, or always on power is costing you.

COMPARE RESULTS

Get at-a-glance comparisons for this month, last month and the same month 1 year ago. “This Month” also includes a projection of how much electricity you will likely use.

Set a threshold and receive an alert via text message or email when This Month’s usage exceeds the threshold of last month. It’s a great way to set savings target. EnergyCloud will help you meet them.

ANALYZE HABITS

Use the Appliance breakdown to get a deep-dive on where you use electricity the most.

Knowing this can help you identify your best opportunities to save money on your electricity bills. For example, your “Phantom Load” comes from devices that use power 24/7. Unplugging them when you don’t need them can add up to big savings over time.

How It works?

Better information = better decisions = reduced energy usage = cleaner environment — It's that simple!

Independent Research shows that on average, homes with access to real time energy data reduce their usage by 9%. Homes with electric heat and hot water experience even greater reductions, 14% and 17%.

The PowerCost Series system is a wireless energy monitoring solution. Your energy usage data is transmitted in real-time from your electricity meter via the Blue Line optical sensor and sent to your CloudConnector and via the WiFi Bridge to your EnergyCloud account. You can monitor usage remotely on-line as well manage your energy use.

The system consists of a series of parts. The patented optical sensor unit gathers electricity usage information from your meter and sends it to a compatible receiving device, such as the Blue Line PowerCost Monitor™ CloudConnector.
