The Current Cost ENVI is the next generation in energy monitoring. Envi helps users to understand their energy usage and more importantly their wastage. Empowering individuals with real time information, the Envi can influence changes in energy awareness and habits, reduce energy bills and improve Carbon Footprints.

Studies show that when you have the ability to monitor your electric usage and get immediate feedback of your actions on an easy to read display, you can save as much as 15% on your electricity usage.


The Envi helps consumers to join the fight towards a more sustainable future. With the Envi Energy Monitor you can see in REAL-TIME how much electricity your whole home is using. Only by knowing how much you are consuming, can you start to manage it.

The Envi displays:

  • Energy use in Dollars and Kilowatts
  • Historical usage for the past day, week and month
  • Calculates average usage in Dollars and Cents
  • Temperature and Time
  • Optional computer connectivity

Simultaneously observe average, instant and historical consumption. The Envi can be set with individual tariffs to display realistic associated costs for electricity and in the future, multi-fuel usage. Using Current Cost IAM plugs, educated choices can be made by identifying individual appliance consumption and costs.

Optional PC Connection is available for streaming seven years historical data. Envi Energy Monitor stores data for up to 7 years. This data can be transferred to a PC using a USB cable.

There are several software programs that will display your data in graphical format and applications have been created for mobile technology that enable remote access and control.

ENVI kit contents

Envi Kits come with everything you need. Simply install the two sensors in your power panel and the wireless transmitter will send usage data directly to the Envi display in real time. The transmitter is powered by batteries with a 7 year life.

• How Does the ENVI Work?

How does the ENVI work diagram

2 CT-clamps* surround the main incoming electric supply cables found in the main breaker panel. These clamps sense the amount of amperage flowing through the wires. They send a signal to the transmitter.

*Three clamps can be used for 208 V-3-phase installations.

The CT clamps connect to the transmitter which is placed inside the breaker box. The transmitter sends a wireless signal up to 100 ft indoors. The transmitter sends an update very 6 seconds if there has been a change in usage. The transmitter’s D size batteries should last up to 7 years before replacement.

The Display receives the wireless signal and then calculates usage. The large display will show the current usage both in terms of watts and Dollars. The display also stores the data and displays usage trends along with actual usage from yesterday, last week and last month. The device stores up to 7 years worth of data.

A optional USB cable connects the Envi display to a computer. The Envi will export both current and historical data to a computer. There are various third party software programs available that will collect and interpret the data which can then be viewed in charts and graphs.
