Smart Meters: Changing The Way We Power Our Homes
Until we can find a way to power the grid with something other than coal, gas, or nuclear energy, it’s important for consumers to focus on simply reducing their consumption. If you’re interested in learning more about the way you use electricity or the way the government controls it, installing a smart meter could be very useful.
If you have dreams of living off the grid, spending six months to a year monitoring your energy consumption with a smart meter will help you know exactly how much energy you’ll need to produce through wind, solar, or other means.
This infographic will give you a better understanding of the differences between smart meters and traditional meters, and why they present an effective method for reducing inefficiency and saving electricity.
