The eGauge is a CT meter, which means it can measure the power of individual circuits in your electric panel using sensors called current transformers (CTs). The meter also displays your energy data on a webpage in real-time. Watch as your graph changes every second, revealing potential problems that you could never discover with a simple utility bill.
Carry on with your daily routine while eGauge watches for unexpected energy patterns. These text and email alerts work for you to find excess equipment usage, unexpected demand charges, loss of renewable energy production and other costly failures. Energy alerts are user-definable and can be set to trigger for virtually any threshold value.
Save more money with your energy efficiency projects with a metering system that has no subscription fees. We want you to take two steps forward and no steps back when it comes to your green investments.

How Does the eGauge Work?
Up to 30 sensors, called current transformers (CTs), are placed on circuits in your breaker panel. These sensors measure the current flowing through the wires connected to each circuit breaker.
The eGauge reads current transformers several thousand times per second, calculates power, stores that data, and creates a user interface to display the information.
The user interface is a webpage, so there's no additional software to install or download.
eGauge Systems will be closed Monday, February 19th in observance of Presidents Day.
A CT meter is a device that measures amperage in one or more conductors using sensors called current transformers (CTs). Current transformers come in many sizes and amperage ratings which allows a single meter to measure all kinds of electrical loads. In addition to amperage, these metering devices measure voltage so they can ultimately calculate power.Read more
Power factor is the ratio of real power (kW) to apparent power (KVA). This ratio can be a value from 0 to 1, and it indicates how efficiently an AC circuit is using electricity, with a value of 1 representing high efficiency. The third type of power, called reactive power (KVAr), causes electronics to be inefficient and draws the ratio closer to 0 by creating a difference between real power and apparent power.Read more
