Everyday Review - Sense Home Energy Monitor

Every wanted to know exactly what in your home uses how much energy and when?  I did and found a fantastic solution by watching TV one afternoon.  True story.

We had solar panels installed when we had to replace our roof a few years ago.  When we did, we wanted to know what appliances in our home were power hungry little devils and which were efficient little angels.  After all, when the State allows you to sell back extra power to the grid, you get efficient fast.

That's where the Sense Home Energy Monitor came in.

I first saw it on an episode of This Old House and they showed how the Sense not only tracks energy usage and solar production (if you purchase the additional module) but it learns what devices you have in your home and lets you track them independently in real time. That's those red and orange circles on the image above show how much energy is being used.  They pop up and down and you can see spikes in usage.

Like many families we had a general idea of our energy…
