About a month after we released the Tweet-a-watt project Google announced their power meter press/info site for the Google Powermeter, a lot of folks email us each week asking if Tweet-a-watt works with Google Power meter, we do not know. We applied to their program for smart meters a couple months ago and received this auto-responder today (see below).
If anyone works with the Google powermeter and has Tweet-a-watt working please let us know a lot of power company start ups bought the kit so we’re pretty sure someone is doing something cool 🙂
Thank you for your interest in Google PowerMeter. We’ve reviewed all of the submissions we received since our announcement. We’ve been very pleased to receive so many inquiries about our gadget and how we can collaborate with device manufacturers. Our goal is to enable devices to easily integrate with Google PowerMeter using our API. At the moment, we’re working hard developing the API with our utility partners but we don’t have detailed specifications for it yet. When we release the Google PowerMeter API, we hope that you will review the specifications to evaluate integrating your product with the API.
We’ve provided a bit more detail on the API on our FAQs page: http://www.google.org/powermeter/faqs.html
