Origin rolls out real-time energy monitor
Source: Climate Spectator, 17 June 2013
Victorian Origin Energy customers can now get a smart-phone sized monitor which provides a near to real-time reading of energy usage and cost.
This is a step up from Origin’s online energy usage monitoring service – Origin Smart – which could only provide information with a 24 hour lag and only in 30 minute increments.
The device communicates wirelessly with smart-meters installed in Victorian households, but is not available in the SP Ausnet region at this stage.
The Origin Energy Monitor will be available free and exclusive to eligible Victorian customers who sign up to and remain on the Origin Smart Daily Saver Energy Plan.
