EnergyHub is a complete energy management system, that allows users to easily digest their energy use and associated monthly costs. The EnergyHub Home Area Network let users monitor their whole home and control individual appliances. This past fall at the New York Maker Faire I had the opportunity to share a space under the Sustainability Tent with some EnergyHub team members. I can attest to the user-friendly system and the home base unit actually consumes less energy than a cell phone charger. http://vimeo.com/20882933 Coolest Thing About EnergyHub: EnergyHub puts the power of control into your hands. Monitor and control everything in your home, from small electronics to water heaters.

EnergyHub is a great and immediate solution to the wait for smart grid technology to become ubiquitous. How You Can Get One: EnergyHub recommends starting with their Starter Kit priced at $324.99.
