Skunkware World HQ Now On “Smart Grid”

Two weeks ago, MECO installed a “Smart Meter” at Skunkware HQ. This gadget is just too cool. It shows how much electricity (in KwH) I’ve used, how much I’ve sent back from my solar array, and the net.

These are the “Use Codes”:

03 = Electricity I use, in KwH

33 = Electricity sent back to MECO by my solar panels

23 = Net use

In the last two weeks, I’ve used 73.x KwH, I’ve sent back 75, so my net is NEGATIVE 1.x.

How cool is that? At this rate, my monthly electric bill will be……ZERO!
