Energy management and Energy monitoring are two things that you may have heard a lot about lately, but you may not know what they are. What does it mean to monitor or manage your energy, and how can you do these things?
Energy monitoring is examining the usage of energy in your home, office, etc., and energy management makes use of the information collected to alter how energy is used to conserve energy. Starting an energy management routine by yourself can a daunting task.
