Step One: Identify The High Energy Items.

The first thing we thought about after getting our $400.00 Austin Energy bill was to add solar panels, but instead of jumping the gun and throwing large amounts of money at the problem we decided to get smarter and do our homework on why our energy bill was so high.

We installed a smart Home Energy Meter and ran an Energy Audit on all devices inside the show home. We keep the "Total Home Wattage" displayed on an iPad in our kitchen to show our usage to everyone in real time.
