Have you ever wanted to view your electricity consumption at a click of a button and understand your total cost involved in consuming electricity? Have you ever wanted to manage your peak load efficiently and be responsive to utility’s Time of Day tariff
programs? Have you ever wondered if you can somehow turn on / off your electrical appliances remotely?
