What is ? TED = The Energy Detective Home Electricity Monitor Installs in the breaker panel Displays real time electricity information Provides dollar amount of electricity Projects monthly usage to predict bills Displays electricity usage used thus far in billing cycle
What are the Benefits of using ? Instantly and conveniently view electricity data in your home Lower your electricity bill by an average of 12% by being constantly aware of usage View an extremely accurate estimate of projected monthly bill View monthly usage thus far in cycle Make better decisions to save electricity
Home Electricity Monitor Studies The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) conducted a Residential Electricity Use Feedback Study that shows if a homeowner has real-time access to their electricity data, they will save 8-15% off their electricity bill. In 2006, an independent Oxford University study found that homeowners getting direct feedback on their power consumption reduced their electricity use by 5% to 15%.

How does TED work? Measuring Transmitting Unit and set of Current Transformers connect inside the breaker panel A power line carrier signal is sent from the breaker panel to the Display Unit Electricity produced by utility travels to homes in the breaker panel Homeowners can save an average of 10-15% off their electricity bill by monitoring usage
What are the main components? Measuring Transmitting Unit and Current Transformers The Current Transformers clamp around the two main incoming conductors of a panel. The Measuring Transmitting Unit wires into a breaker to transmit the power line carrier signal. Remote Display Unit The Remote Display Unit plugs into an outlet and delivers real time data. Homeowners can instantly see their current usage, project monthly bills, and see their total usage thus far in the billing cycle.
Installation Inside the Breaker Panel Clamp each Current Transformer around each main conductor in the breaker panel
Screenshots of the TED 1001 View current $/kw Hour rate as well as the total electricity usage for the day. View current $/kw Hour rate with the total amount of electricity used for the billing cycle, as well as an estimate of the projected bill for the end of the billing cycle, based on past usage. View current energy rate based on your billing structure and usage. View current kw amount of electricity that is currently being used per hour, along with total kilowatt usage for the day, with date and time. View days left in billing cycle to help estimate your projected monthly bill.
Customer Feedback “I have to tell you this is the first time I have contacted a company because how happy I am with a product. I have less than 2 months using the TED 1001 and I have already saved more than $100 on my power bill. This product is just awesome and it's incredible how being able to see your power consumption in real time makes you to be more careful. I have moved from consuming 12Kw/h a day to 5Kw/h. We used to be the house with the highest consumption in our neighborhood, now we are on the opposite. I was confident that the problem was with the electrical company but TED proved me wrong, the reality was that we were consuming a LOT of electricity.”
