Powercost: Home Energy Monitor


The Powercost is a home energy monitor, allowing you to see how much electricity you use.

The Powercost will tell you how much your energy is costing you as well, allowing you to see the effects of any green initiatives you’re trying in your home. You will be able to see exactly how much energy you are using, seeing this will help to motivate you to reduce you consumption, and save some money while you’re at it!

It’s easy to install and only includes 2 pieces. The sensor is separate from the display, so unlike some other monitors, the display can be placed anywhere and is not required to be on an outlet.

If you live in Ontario and have Hydro One as your energy provider, you are actually eligible for a free Powercost unit. Give them a call and get yours!

If you’re outside of Ontario, you can get your own Powercost for $150.
