      Blog is good continuation of the contents provided by John Astil and Jim Spath.  So who out there has a smart meter at home?  Sounds like an opportunity to make a small and positive investment in one.  It would be good to see more details about recommendation in setting that up.  I believe we discussed previously but perhaps technology suggestions have evolved.

      Hi Marlyn,

      Thanks for the comment. I will be posting a blog later today with instructions on how to integrate a home metering solution into the Home Carbon Challenge.

      There are more and more examples of home metering showing up. Home owners with tweeting homes have shown up on the BBC and other news agencies.
