How does it work? PiCosm allows you to log anything you acquire, from a refrigerator to a solar panel. If any of the items you log have been assigned a Pi Product profile, then the energy used or generated by your acquisitions is displayed at the top right of your PiCosm dashboard, as shown below.
The percentage readout top right indicates how much of your energy usage is sustainable, or to be idealistic, how far you are from existing ‘off grid’. For example, generating 300 watts of energy (on a good day), but using 1400 watts? Then you’re approximately 20% off grid – very approximately.
(Calculations do not take into account the life cycle of products. That is, the energy used to mine, manufacturer and even dispose of an item.)
