How Can You Conduct an Energy Audit and Verify Your Electricity Bill?

In order to cross-check the accuracy of the energy meter installed by the Electrical Power company at your premises, and conduct a real-time Energy Audit of your power usage and power bills, you can consider installing a Smart Electricity Monitor as a Smart Energy Audit device in your premises.

This device will not only provide you the real-time electricity consumption which you can re-check with DISCOM’s electricity meter but, you will also be able to monitor, measure, store, report, analyze and optimize the energy consumption in your whole premises.

Based on the analysis of the reports, you can understand which circuits and hence the loads are consuming more power and at what time of the day. So you can check and remove the possible wastage and be more efficient in energy usage.

Please consider that whatever and whenever electricity is required on your premises, it has to be consumed, but, you can minimize the power wastage and regulate the usage to save the energy units, which will reflect in your savings in monthly electricity bill payouts.

Smart Electricity monitors are of two types, Hardwired Sensor Based Electricity Monitors and AI-Based Electricity Monitors.

In the case of Hardwired Sensor-based Electricity Monitors, you have to install the device in your main electrical panel with access to a Wi-Fi internet network. This energy audit device is to be registered and configured with the cloud server through a smartphone app. The device sensors/CTs are to be clamped on different circuits(max. 50A) and service mains(max 200A) where the electricity usage is to be monitored.

On the other hand, AI-Based Smart Electricity Monitors are AI-powered and do not need separate sensors. The device is installed in series to the main electricity meter and identifies various appliances in the home based on their load signatures. Highly specialized algorithms capture variations in the clubbed electrical signals and segregate different patterns corresponding to individual loads in the premises.
