Hi Raf Welcome home! We have just borrowed a Centameter which tells us how many KWs we are using in the house at any one time. You can turn all the appliances off and then turn them on individually to get a sense of what they are using. Approx $140 to buy I think - could be quicker than an energy audit? Sophie

Hey Sophie J. Yes I've seen them around before and think they are a great idea for measuring electricity use. I'm looking more for the most efficient way to heat my house. I'd love a huge solar installation but haven't found the right technology yet. Hopefully something will turn up on here. Cheers Raf

Maybe try asking a question in the Q+A Hall...someone might have done some research and already knows the best solar kit available...good luck, Raf!

Thanks Nick. Awesome work by the way.
