What are Energy Monitors?

As part of the LEAP projects mission to save energy and save you money, we have a number of wireless electricity monitors available for free loan to members of our local community.

Energy monitors will tell you how much energy your household is consuming – they are small tabletop devices that help you find out how much energy you are using in your home and how much it is costing you.


Energy monitors are a great tool to help you change your behaviour and cut your gas and electricity bills. Energy monitors can show you the effects of leaving multiple appliances on stand-by too and according to the Energy Saving Trust, you could find that your energy usage drops between 5% and 15% in the first year of using an energy monitor – which could be a saving of £25-£75 on a £500 bill.
