Electricity meters and renewable energy at home

Managing energy bills can be a bit of a pain. Many people struggle to or don’t have the time to keep up with their energy bills and leave them to fall to the wayside. This can become particularly concerning for those who have renewable energy systems installed at home, selling electricity back to the grid for some extra money. Obviously people would like to monitor how much electricity they are generating and selling as well as how much profit that electricity is producing for them at any given moment. This can be tricky to track with a conventional home energy monitoring system as updates to your bill are usually only highlighted in a monthly bill. An increasing trend over the past decade has been to install smart energy meters into homes.
