The Canary Energy lets you see your electricity use in the form of colors. The left wing displays your power use (electricity being used at the moment) as the right wing reflects the energy you’ve consumed over the course of the day.

Take action based on the indicative colors you’ve set. Is the left wing red and nothing around you on? You might have left the coffee maker on the in the kitchen or the fan on in the bathroom.

At times you’ll think: “I need to save!” But that’s not always the case. Sometimes the colors are simply a reminder that you get to share modern conveniences that electrical power provides with the ones you love.

There are five (5) color transitions that are currently set to green, yellow, orange, red, and fuchsia. Green indicates the lowest energy use and fuchsia, the highest.
The levels are determined based on average home energy use. They can be customized based on:

  • • Monthly averages of your home energy bill
  • • Household type, size, and location
  • • Solar budget
  • • Your conservation goals
  • • Seasonal changes
Currently, the colors are factory set, however we are working to develop a web based user interface, where you can set any color codes that you like.
The controller is the portion that sits in the circuit breaker box. It will work with wires that are 1/0 AWG (0.5” OD) and with enough room to accommodate it’s dimensions.
Controller dimensions: H: 1.77” x W:3.10” x L: 4.61”
The display plugs in easily to any standard wall outlet and only requires one socket. The controller needs to be installed inside the circuit breaker box. We highly recommend using a licensed electrician to install the controller. In our experience, it takes about 10-15 minutes.
