2.  Appliance Itemisation

Our Appliance Itemisation feature means you’ll know exactly which appliances are costing you the most. There’s no arguing with the data. With Home Electric+ you can track energy usage and costs of individual appliances all around the house. How does it work? Each appliance uses electricity in a unique manner, think of it like an appliance fingerprint. Using our algorithms we detect and extract these fingerprints from your electricity usage data and convert this into useful insights and recommendations for you.

3. Similar Homes Comparison

This feature enables you to track your usage in comparison to other energy-efficient homes. You can compare usage across categories such as lighting, water heating and refrigeration.

What’s an energy-efficient home?

Energy-efficient homes are classified as the top 30% in your geographical group (eircode) that use their electricity the most efficiently.

4. Energy tips tailored to your usage

Based on your ongoing usage, you will receive personalised energy tips that will highlight where you could save more based on what you are doing. These tips will be tailored to your usage patterns, for example, upgrade to LED Christmas lights for up to 75% energy savings

5. Projected energy usage

Avoid bill shock with our projected energy usage tools. You will be able to see what your projected bill will be based on your current usage. With Home Electric+, the consumption and spending information is updated regularly.

Equipped with all these charts you’ll be able to view your electricity usage more clearly, use less, save more and make better choices for you, your home, or business, and for Ireland’s energy future. And the more homes and businesses that are able to do that, the better it’ll be for everyone.
