Recently, I read a forum article that directed me to the works of David00 over the use of a Raspberry Pi for power monitoring. Now, since I am looking into upgrading my home to use solar power (and not being new to this process of conversion) I know that I will need some better insight into my power usage before I can accurately plan my build out. Tools like what David00 has created are just what the engineer ordered!!!
To see what this fellow has put together as one of the best options that I have yet seen for fellow Makers and enthusiasts, look at the wiki in his git repo.
As of this morning I have begun determining what I need and intend upon ordering the prebuilt kit from him shortly. I will detail my experience here as it progresses – so check back 🙂
