Save Electricity.

Golden Speed, exclusive distributor of UK-based Eco-Eye, has introduced devices that inform users of the amount of electricity being used in real time.

The wireless electricity monitors are designed for use in the sultanate and convert electricity usage into Omani rials, helping users control their electricity consumption and cut down wastage.

The devices are simple to use and come with three censors, a transmitter and a wireless display which work through batteries. The three censors are clipped to the yellow, red and blue electric cables near the mains, which can be done without the help of an electrician. The censors use the same technology used in electricity meters. Once the censors are attached to the right wires, the time, consumption and cost in rials are displayed on the screen. The monitors display the consumption of electricity per hour, per day, per week, per month and per year in a household.

Daniel Sellu from Golden Speed, who has been working in the field of energy savings, said, AoBy making a small change around the household, we can make a considerable difference to our electricity bills. Knowing how much electricity you are using and having the information clearly displayed in front of you makes a real difference.Ao

According to Daniel, Golden Speed is campaigning to raise awareness on the impact of indiscriminate electricity use on the environment. The monitors also have a function that shows the userAAEs carbon emission which could help the country in the long run.

Daniel said a campaign is currently on in the UK to have all houses fitted with similar electricity usage monitors by 2020. About Golden SpeedAAEs plans in Oman, he claimed the company has the capability to provide these electricity monitors to every household here.

Besides households, Golden Speed is also targeting the corporate sector and other institutions. The monitors come in two sizes and the customer can choose according to the amount of usage. The small size costs RO50 and the other RO70.

With every unit of Golden Speed, customers are given a list of ten simple steps to follow which can cut down the electricity bill by 35 per cent.

The company also plans to provide energy savings consultancy starting from February for business and high-energy consumers where it evaluates the consumption and wastage and reports back with a review on how to reduce costs. Golden Speed also supplies and fits energy savings devices which it claims can cut down high electricity bills in homes and corporate houses.

The Golden Speed electricity monitors are available at Shah Nagardas Manji, Qurm, and Rawaj in Muscat City Centre.
