Electricity consumers, who are bothered by the lack of a realistic, scientific tool to measure their power consumption patterns and bring it down, now have help at hand, thanks to a recently-launched android app called Energyly.

The application created by Energyly (formerly called eMeter), a start-up firm engaged in providing energy intelligence software solutions to commercial organisations, provides detailed energy analytics for domestic consumers of power consumed and a prediction of electricity to be consumed for the next five years.

Dayal Nathan, founder of the company, said the application also provides data of energy consumption pattern of a consumer having Tamil Nadu Generation and Distribution Corporation (Tangedco) connection.

“All the customer has to do is feed in the consumer number and the data of energy consumed over the years would be generated,” he said.

Pointing out the features of the android app including month-on-month and year-on-year comparisons, Mr. Nathan said the USP is that the use can find the energy that could be saved by efficient use of the electrical appliances through a simulated, energy management tool that provides the ‘switches on/off’ option for various appliances.

Soon, in other States

Dilip, co-founder of the company, said the app, at present covers users in Tamil Nadu, but will soon be available for other states too.

For those who do not have a consumer number, the app could be accessed by clicking ‘Add Test Number’ and find the power consumption data.

Tangedco has an energy calculator to find the tariff calculator for Low Tension (LT) consumers on its website www.tangedco.gov.in.
