What is it?  The Mersey Tobeatic Research Institute, a charitable cooperative located just west of Bridgewater, is installing a residential-scale energy monitoring system to track real-time energy consumption and energy production from its solar/wind/geothermal system and display the information online. This energy monitoring system will reduce energy consumption at our organization and in the broader community.

Why was this project selected for the Living Energy Laboratory?

  • People onsite can learn exactly how their behaviour affects power consumption and take steps to reduce consumption
  • MTRI’s green technologies can be monitored and properly maintained for optimum performance
  • By making monitoring results public, people can be inspired to make changes at their own homes and businesses
