We installed the Sense monitor a few months ago in order to see exactly where our electricity use was going. As the Sense unit "learned" what was using electricity, we discovered that way too much of it was powering a 40-year old freezer that was much larger than needed. Between the state rebates for removing an old appliance and the savings on electricity of a more efficient new unit, our new freezer will "pay for itself" in less than three years. Recently we have used the Sense unit to figure out how to reduce our minimum "always on" electricity use by 40%. This by itself saves enough electricity for 20% of the daily use of our electric vehicle!
