Microsoft announces the addition of a remote, real-time energy monitoring device to its Hohm service, while Google continues to expand its coverage as both vie for dominance of the smart meter market.
As the development of the smart grid continues, software manufacturers such as Google and Microsoft are throwing their weight behind developing online energy monitoring software.
It might be possible to have the Tweet-a-Watt work with the Microsoft hohm project, anyone working near/around this? Regardless, it’s likely good that Microsoft is hopping in to this arena, the Google PowerMeter project seems end-of-line?
