How It works?

Better information = better decisions = reduced energy usage = cleaner environment — It's that simple!

Independent Research shows that on average, homes with access to real time energy data reduce their usage by 9%. Homes with electric heat and hot water experience even greater reductions, 14% and 17%.

The PowerCost Series system is a wireless energy monitoring solution. Your energy usage data is transmitted in real-time from your electricity meter via the Blue Line optical sensor and sent to your CloudConnector and via the WiFi Bridge to your EnergyCloud account. You can monitor usage remotely on-line as well manage your energy use.

The system consists of a series of parts. The patented optical sensor unit gathers electricity usage information from your meter and sends it to a compatible receiving device, such as the Blue Line PowerCost Monitor™ CloudConnector.
