Default Online home energy use trackers

Ever since starting this site, I have wanted (as well as other members who have voiced their ideas) a way to track their home energy usage. Unfortunately, I am not up to snuff on creating this feature on ER, and Ben is swamped with other things to do. However, I still think its a very important thing and am trying to think of other ways we can get around this.

For a long time now, I had just been running my own thread on my home's energy usage (http://ecorenovator.org/forum/conser...-tracking.html). Its a very clunky way of doing things and doesn't really get the job done well.

Recently, I started looking at other sites that you can use to track energy usage. So far, I have found a few, but I'm not sure which one I really like. I'd love to get input from you guys on which ones you like, or if you know of other ones that are better. Let me know.

The ones I have seen/tried are:
  • Microsoft Hohm - A nice site that is pretty smart and very detailed. It gives recommendations based on all the info you provide them.
  • Fuelstart.com - It is alright, a bit clunkier than the MS option. It seems to be a bit more focus on finding cheap fuels rather than tracking energy for efficiency sake.
  • I think Home : ENERGY STAR also has a tracker of some sort. I haven't had a chance to try it out yet though.

So, if you wouldn't mind, try one or two and let me know what you think.
