OK so the generic Energy Diverter NRGDivert needs to improve on the existing examples in a cost effective manner.
So lets examine the Pro’s and Cons of Energy Diversion.
Pros and Cons of existing solutions
- Low Cost Energy
- Better use of Energy because of grid transmission losses
- Requires Wiring changes to you house.
- Limited use case for energy CAR Charging /Hot Water tank
- Requires extra hardware
Addressing the CONs for NRGDivert
Con 1 :- By using Clip on current sensors as in the our CUMonitor Kit you don’t need to alter the wiring of you house to sense the usage.
Con 2:- If the Energy Diverter takes the form at an extension lead that may only be used to power resistive loads see NRGDivert link TBD
