Google announced a new service, Google PowerMeter, earlier this month. Google is said to be currently testing this service internally. I can’t wait for it go public because I know that I would use it.
In case you aren’t aware, Google PowerMeter is a service that will allow you to monitor energy usage in your home. This will allow you to find high energy users and to help you reduce the amount of energy you consume. For more information visit the Google PowerMeter site or the Google.org blog. The Google.org blog also has some information on the ,”Plug into the Smart Grid” event that Google and GE co-hosted on February 17th.
If Google PowerMeter is as well refined as most of Google’s products, then this should be a very successful tool. Nice!
