OWL - wireless electricity monitor

OWL electricity monitor

Monitoring your energy use

Understanding when and where you’re using energy in your home is a useful first step in helping to cut your energy use and reduce your carbon footprint.

OWL electricity monitor

To help you to do this you’re now able to borrow an OWL electricity monitor from your local library – free of charge! The OWL monitor shows you exactly how much electricity you're using in the home - and what you're paying for it. Once you know that, it's much easier to make changes that can save you energy and money.

About the OWL

  • It's a real time monitor which shows you how you are using electricity.
  • It helps you decide how you can cut down your energy consumption.
  • It gives up to the second information on the amount of electricity you are using in terms of power, cost and carbon footprint.
  • It will show you the cash impact of changing how you use energy.
  • The monitor is easy to install and connects to your electrical supply. You can do it yourself so you don't even have to pay for an electrician.
  • The monitor is supplied with 6xAA batteries

Borrowing a monitor

To borrow an OWL monitor just pop into your local library and request to use one for free. You will need to register at the library if you're not already a member.

OWL user survey

Now that you have used the OWL Wireless Electricity Monitor, it would be really helpful if you could let us know how things went, what you learnt and whether having the OWL has changed the way you use electricity in your home. Just complete our OWL on-line survey.
