Energy monitoring technologies were researched and tested by a project team Stone Environmental, Inc. for use in a Decentralized Wastewater Management Demonstration Project near Greenwood Lake, New York. The team found that energy consumption monitoring technologies for onsite wastewater systems could be described in four categories: pump timer calculations, consumer monitoring devices, professional-grade data loggers, and customized control panel or sub-meters. Of the technologies researched for this study, a consumer or “in-home” monitoring device was selected for its cost, open platform data collection, and the effectiveness with which it could encourage positive changes in energy consumption habits.
