Google has announced its plan to help consumers gain better information about their personal electricity usage.
The plan, which is listed on Google’s philanthropic website, promotes the adoption of smart electricity meters in homes across the world.
These smart meters are better than regular meters because they can provide detailed information about usage rates throughout the day, theoretically letting consumers make smarter decisions about when to leave the lights on or when to run the dryer.
The search giant is using its weight to bring data online that currently exists in a very offline realm.
