How does GET The GET
work? uses a simple clip-on sensor and transmitter inside the meter box to transmit a real time
reading of actual power being used to a portable LCD display inside the home or office. This reading shows the cost of electricity being used in a real time dollar value.

How does it measure the energy output?
It cleverly measures electricity consumption using kilowatt hours, it also measures the resulting CO2 emissions in Kg as well as in-home temperature.
