Electricity We Use

Cascade Meadow has several power meters that help us monitor our electricity usage. One tracks the power used by lights and outlets inside the building, while another tracks the power used by lights and outlets outside the building. A third meter records the power used by most of the HVAC system,and a fourth tracks the solar thermal system, along with a few other minor pumps and fans.
