Blueline Innovations PowerCost Monitor

Pros: good price, changes behavior, nice design

Cons: eats batteries, a pain to re-sync, always says .3kw

I bought this little baby roughly 2 years ago and I love what it has done for my home and family.  It was a pain to sync the thing to my meter, but once up and running, our dirty little energy secrets were out.  Want to see an environmentalist cry?  Show them the power meter as their hot shower runs into its 10th minute. It effectively turns you into a home hypermiler, as you tweak everything possible to get those kw readouts lower.  Sure, you could have your spouse call you on your cellphone while reading each spin of the disk outside in the rain to save the $149, but buying this gadget can save an environmentalist's marriage!  Until I see a better value in power metering, Blueline gets my money, and gives it back in savings as I watch the wattage tick by.

 

 

Blueline Innovations PowerCost Monitor
Description:

The PowerCost Monitor is something that once you start using it, your life changes. Seriously. It is a two-piece system with an attractive digital readout base, and a sensor that attaches to your electricity meter (analog spinning disc style or digital). A little wonky to hook up at first, but once the readout fires up, you've turned your home into a Prius and all its inhabitants into energy misers. Tell me you won't think twice about running that half-full dishwasher as the readout changes from .3 kw to 5.8kw! The more you watch it, the more you are compelled to get that readout as low as possible. Instant feedback to your energy using behavior changes that behavior, stat!
