Answer: A: Accuracy of meter Clamps
... Thanks Laser, just run a test with the 2Kw Kettle. GEO Plug = 1915 W, Energenie Plug = 2051W. So the Plugs are certainly more accurate than clamps. And I would agree that the trend  is more important that the absolute readings. ...

Accuracy of meter Clamps
... Our setup is that we have an Eon Smart meter, a GEO clamp as part of the Energyuse  trial and a Energenie Mihome Clamp as part of another trial. I thought I would compare the readings using the resistive loads of a 2Kw kettle and a 3Kw Immersion Heater. In the following table I have normalised the f ...

Answer: A: EnergyNote meter's readings 70% higher than utility meter, why?
... @darius_s, Finally got some figures for you. As we have a Smart meter I am able to do a comparison between the Geo clamp and 'official' consumption. The figures do show that depending on the nature resistive/reactive type of load and size of load a slight difference in readings. So my installation   ...

Answer: A: EnergyNote meter's readings 70% higher than utility meter, why?
... @darius_s, Thank you for the figures, which putting on one side your kettle test look OK to me. Taking the Clamp reading away from the Plug reading gives a figure for the Other or background consumption. Then taking an average of the including PC and excluding PC shows a difference of 0.06 -0.04 = 0 ...

Answer: A: EnergyNote meter's readings 70% higher than utility meter, why?
... @darius_s, It might helps us to understand your problem if you could share a typical days consumption readings from the Analysis section of the energynote web site. At any point in time the Clamp will be recording total home consumption so will change second by second as fridge's/freezers & boil ...

Answer: A: EnergyNote meter's readings 70% higher than utility meter, why?
... Planetcooler, thanks for quick contribution. So 'dain' maybe could subtract the Energynote figure of 819kWh from 467kWh of utility bill and get  352kWh being an approximate figure of  export energy from their housing association PV array?   ...

Answer: A: EnergyNote meter's readings 70% higher than utility meter, why?
... We have a Smart meter and compared the daily readings for 24 days in April/May this year. Smart Meter = 355kWh; GeoClamp = 356.2 kWh. We do not have any PV. I am wondering if the GeoClamp cannot distinguish between import & export so the reading 'dain' is getting is the sum of both figures? ...

Answer: Re: Bread machine
... I used to bake my own bread so am interested in your research. Looking at the RRP of the machine £160 you would need to bake a loaf a day for about a year to get a breakeven point and be able to write off the cost in pure financial terms. I wonder what the equivalent cost would be if you used an e ...

Answer: Re: leaving lights on
... Patricia, well done! The modern fashion for Halogen in ceiling spot lights is very energy intensive. If one of them fails you land up with a dark spot in the room so you have to replace it. Our house is older than the spot craze, kitchen has a 1.5M fluorescent 58W light. We have replaced the under u ...

Answer: Re: Routers
... Having just moved my Green Energy monitor to check my setup. My Router/WiFi unit consumes 10 Watts. As I have Fibre to the Cabinet service there is also a FTTC Modem consuming 5 Watts. It all adds up. But you have to keep them all on as the Smart home needs to talk to the world 24/7. Just unpluggi ...
