36088311The company Elah Valley Energy Engineering based in Israel, has developed a next-generation smart energy meter called the “Watt-O-Meter”. This device could provide constant reading regarding the electricity consumption of a home. Wasted energy is costly and creates unnecessary air pollution contributing to climate change.

This smart meter installed on home fuse boxes allows users to keep track of their electricity consumption and generates alertness with users to cut down on their unnecessary usage of electricity.

In Israel the average consumption was 6000 kW/NIS 3,000 per year but after using the energy meter it is seen that a potential savings of 1200 kW/600 shekels is made a year. The Watt-O-Meter is not capable of reducing energy usage by itself but displays the data power at homes in real time and then translates it into financial cost.
