Monitor your energy use online
Energy providers now offer online energy monitoring.
You can log on to find out how much energy your company has been using and compare that figure with a previous period.
This online monitoring of your energy use is provided as a no-cost service by many energy providers.
Some offer far better online monitoring than others, so it’s worth checking to see how much information they provide.
Suki Hairdressing, NSW
Suki hair salon began their successful energy saving campaign by monitoringhow much energy they were using with the online WebGraphs system ‘EnviR’ electricity monitor. This was provided when they signed up to the Energy Hunter efficiency scheme.
Suki co-owner Greig Hardman conducted experiments around the salon using the monitor. By turning equipment on and off, he could see how much electricity each item consumed.
