Blue Line’s flagship product, PowerCost Monitor, is a home energy display that delivers real-time data and alerts, allowing customers to monitor energy usage for general home use and/or key appliances. Consumers can reduce stress on the grid by lowering usage, deferring the requirement for new infrastructure investments, and potential new price increases, said the company. An estimating feature also provides feedback on the impact of changes and uses recent trends to provide a 30-day usage projection.
“Our easy-to-use display shows consumers how even small changes in electricity usage can save a significant amount of money. Real time data allows us all to take control of energy costs. And to top it off Ontario electric utilities are offering the energy monitor free as part of Peaksaver Plus,” said Peter Porteous, Blue Line Innovations CEO.
