Technology for energy optimization

Let’s face it – the Philippines currently has one of the highest electricity rates in Southeast Asia. And with no viable, long-lasting remedy in sight for the country’s ridiculously expensive electricity rates, there’s only one option for Filipino households and businesses: monitor and reduce their usage of electricity.
