Monitor and manage your electricity use
This innovative project with Hook Norton Low Carbon Limited in partnership with Western Power Distribution will allow you to view your data on a web portal and compare it with the highest, lowest and average usage across the village for similar types of properties and number of people in the house. This will help you assess whether you can save money and reduce your electricity consumption. Only you will be able to view and access your data and your personal information is protected.
Since there was most interest expressed by residents fed by the Station Rd, East End, Bourne Lane and Southrop sub stations (see diagram below), these areas have been chosen as the main areas for the Smart Hooky project, though all residents in Hooky will be able to see the information for Hook Norton as a whole.
As with many projects using leading edge technology, we experienced problems with communication via the electricity grid, and this project is currently on hold until new technological solutions can be found.
