A reporter with an in-home energy monitor and a blog

Michael Giberson

After months of paying a ‘smart meter’ surcharge on his power bill, Houston Chronicle energy reporter Tom Fowler finally had a smart meter installed by CenterPoint Energy several weeks back and more recently an in-home energy monitor. He’s blogging the revolution:

When the word gets out about toasters, they may be relegated to museums and history books. One wonders what other changes this slow motion revolution may bring.

  1. Smart meters will be the wave of the future and there are many enhancements that need to be achieved for that technology. Soon to be in every home and business. But still we need to gear more towards Efficiencies within the grid. Here is what we do: Saving on electrical expenditures can be achieved without turning to the high cost of alternative energy sources. Power Factor Correction and Harmonic filtering coupled with other electrical components can be greatly beneficial in reducing electrical consumption. Speaking with our clients, we have found most consumers (Residential and Commercial) simply are unaware of the potentially thousands of dollars they are wasting monthly or yearly as a result of inefficiency in there electrical system. Potentially large saving amounts can be achieved by simply correcting and fine tuning these electrical deficiencies. We at ENERGY WYZE specialize in this delicate and complicated procedure. We are advocates of the customization of each project as the only route to maximum power factor achievement. Website at http://energywyze.us
