Home Energy Monitoring Devices - Open Source
The Open Energy Monitor Project
This is a project to develop and build open source energy monitoring and analysis tools for energy efficiency and distributed renewable micro generation. It makes it possible to do more than just use the technology, you can learn how it works from the physics of AC and DC electricity to electronic circuit design and software programming.

Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or suggestions or if you would like to contribute to the project by sharing your ideas and experiences!
