I’m particularly interested in energy saving and was drawn to Lightwave as both a way of monitoring and controlling my energy usage.
I’ve been gathering energy data for a couple of days now and my average over the last 24 hours is: 367 Watts, with a minimum of 160w when we’re out of the house and a max of a whopping 7.83kw in the morning due to a combination of showers and electric hobs.
Now that I know this, I realised I have no idea if this is good or bad. I know a few of you have other types of energy monitors which may have more active communities, can anyone point me towards somewhere I can compare my electricity usage with other people?
Alternatively we could use this thread to post our electricity usage. I’ll start. ” title=”Very Happy” />
I’m using Cacti, which is an open source graphing app aimed at Network Administrators. The actual graph is made by RRDtool, but I couldn’t be bothered to write my own RRDtool wrapper and I’m already pretty familiar with Cacti.
