Splitting out elec use


Arable Farmer
We’ve got one main supply into the yard. This supply powers the farmhouse, sheds for farm use, sheds for industrial use, biomass boiler, grain drying fans. Each industrial unit has a meter but everything else is lumped as one. I need to work out what’s using what. Is there an easy way of doing this?

Meters can be very cheap and just clamp on the cables as other poster said
For £300 and £25 a year you can get a meter which will report usage on a half hourly basis and a report every day to you via a site like Emig.

We stuck a separate meter in the drier which has been very illuminating. We have family members obsessed with running fans.....they are not so keen on the cost of said fans which can rapidly wipe out £.

We're about to put one into workshop and each house too.


For example.
