Sense home energy monitor

So after using the sense product for over a year now, the most valuable insights are ones where the appliance is too big to hook up an electrical meter like I had been using with the Kill-A-Watt.    I knew my electric hot water tank was an energy hog, but really -- its 30% of my bill/usage!

a nice 4000w spike every time that water gets heated up

luckily the solar generation offset most of my annual use--  nice to see the sun's bell curve of generation over the longer spring-summer days
