The Power in Your Hands project will be providing data on the energy use of households, and St. Peter’s School, which are in the Greenlands area of Tavistock, and connected to the Meavy Way low voltage (LV) substation.
We’re developing a computer based application, which you could also access on a tablet or smart phone.
This will provide information about energy use across the substation area at different times of the day.
Going forward, energy companies will be looking at introducing tariffs with different rates at different times of the day.
We’d like to give you an opportunity to work with us to understand how this could benefit you in the future.
Here’s an example of information we’ll be providing. It’s in the form of graphs and shows usage on October 4th.
The first one shows the power used across the Meavy Way LV substation by each of the three ‘feeders’ (each substation has a number of ‘feeds’ to the different properties. Meavy Way has three feeders).
The second one shows the total power used by everyone connected to the Meavy Way substation.
