What We Like:
AlertMe estimates that its energy-saving technology can save consumers up to 25% of their yearly energy costs, often paying for itself in the first 12 months and knocking one tonne off the average home's annual CO2 emissions. Users of its Energy Kit connect it to their home's broadband connection and then receive an online service that can be viewed via computer or mobile phone, anywhere, anytime. The package constantly measures and controls the home's overall energy usage and turns off or down many household appliances, thereby cutting energy consumption and costs. We also think it's pretty awesome that AlertMe was a Guardian Global Cleantech 100 winner!
