A short report on household energy monitoring from consumer watchdog "Fair Go":

"The OWL costs $295 plus installation, but the sparky who fitted it at mine reckons it's helped him save $50 a month.  I'm not convinced yet. There are other similar appliances, like the Envi-R meter ($180) and the Control4 Energy Monitor ($299).  The OWL and Envi-R clip onto your meter so can work with smart or dumb meters. The Control4 chats wirelessly to a smart meter"
