One of the first things I notice this year is the proliferation of smart power monitoring and management. I think with the “green” movement and consumers wanting and needing to save money in a tight economy, there is a strong market for products to watch power consumption closely. I just started testing a Current Cost ENVI which is integrated with Audrey to monitor and comment on my power usage at the house. I now see dozens of consumer products not necessarily targeted just for hobbyists. I think the trend will continue to grow.
