Electricity hike started since the Russia-Ukraine conflict began. This was also followed by sudden inflation in oil price that brings most commodities its rapid boom in prices. Since the conventional source of electricity in the Philippines mostly comes from oil, the bill of every household and business entity has come to a surprise due to sudden blow up of electricity rate per kwh consumption. So even if we are able to retain the usage of appliances, business equipment and the like, the electricity bill that comes startle us.
Energy consumption is very efficient when effectively monitored. Basic kilowatt hour (kWh) monitoring helps users accurately identify portion of the total energy usage is derived from certain appliances/equipment. Businesses greatly benefit from the Energy Management System (EMS). Knowing the energy consumption data is the best way to conserve electricity. With the continuous inflation in commodities, we can not avoid the increase in grid electricity charge. Having EMS makes you aware of the energy consumption of your establishment.
It is necessary to identify the main contributors of certain energy peaks; your smartphone can alert you and exactly know it real-time. Users are able to apply energy saving practices to dodge higher electricity bills when they know the energy consumption data of their establishment.
This is the great thing of having EMS for your business. You have the advantage of monitoring and controlling your energy now that electricity rate per consumption is very resilient. Understanding how your energy meter runs, is the key to knowing the energy data consumed real-time.
With the current rise of our Fuel, one would think of switching to an alternative mode of transportation like Mass transport, carpooling, or going green with bikes or our topic this time; Electric Vehicles.
Are electric vehicles viable and cheaper compared to owning and operating an ICE (internal combustion engine) Vehicle?
Operating an ICE would take your costing to measure km per litre. An average daily car would clock at least at 16km/L and a daily travel going to work or other essential affair would take around 48.3km. However, a vehicle’s consumption changes depending on the road condition and of course, the traffic’s volume.
Enter Electric Vehicles, EVs are starting to gain fame for not only being a cleaner alternative to petrol operated vehicles, but also with its claim of being cheaper to run. Recent studies shows that the average cost to operate an EV in the United States is $485 per year, while the average for a gasoline-powered vehicle is $1,117. A really big difference especially now with our current state where prices are continually rising, we need to look for options where we can stretch more of our budget, right?
Electric Vehicles are undoubtedly more expensive than internal combustion engines upfront. However, one should consider that EVs are just starting to become a trend and ICEs have 100 years of head start. Hence, we should expect EVs to become cheaper upfront in the future as the technology becomes common and parts became available worldwide.
“But EVs are no fun, we can’t race of feed our need for speed”
EVs are designed with high respect to Aerodynamics since these cars need to reach further with its batteries. These vehicles are also faster than your average small displacement vehicles (1.3L up) since Electric Motors offers less friction from its moving parts. Hence a whole lot of power going into the wheels.
Another significant difference of EVs to ICEs are their cheaper maintenance cost. ICEs are mostly consisted of 100s of moving parts which can malfunction or break one at a time or worst, in a chain. While EVs only has few moving part, its motors, making it cheaper if not at all a maintenance free vehicle. Considering that you know how to properly maintain a vehicle.
While ICEs are being refuelled at Gas Stations roadside, EVs are also charged at Electric Charging Stations roadside or comfortably being charged at home every time the owner gets home. With this, the owner gets to have a “Full-tank” vehicle every day when he gets up and get ready to work. Envision Monitoring’s EN-CORE device can be attached and control and monitor the operation of the charger and protect against power demand spiking ensuring maximum efficiency and safety.
With all things considered, we think that EVs have a lot of potential given the chance to fight its way into the market. Offering the same range, quality, function, and fun of operating internal combustion engines we all loved but sooner or later can see its end of reign in our daily roads due to the price and emissions hazard of their fuel.

Envision: Adapting to the Landscape of Modern Energy Monitoring
Envision-Monitoring on News
In the past few years, the inclusion of technology in different industries has become the norm. The pressure to create efficient processes, invent new machines and use artificial intelligence in our daily business tasks is creating an era of technological change. Without these nonstop and simultaneous changes, our lives would not have improved. It goes to show how effective innovation is these days. And it’s not ending yet, but rather,exponentially growing and expanding. As such, the energy industry is taking quick steps like modern energy monitoring systems to adapt to the ever growing changes in the advancement of technology.
As simple as they may seem, modern Energy Monitoring Systems use technology that are quite complex. Internet of Things, fast processors for data monitoring and even artificial intelligence to predict energy-efficient opportunities are just a few of the recent developments surrounding the energy industry. Energy monitoring before was done manually, and even the most expensive monitoring systems record just a few data points on energy consumption. Nowadays, real-time monitoring is possible – minute by minute recording of data that gives more accurate graphs. And data analysis has never been easier.
This is what Envision does. It’s real-time monitoring capability exceeds the current manual and slow monitoring processes found in industries. And the best part is, data monitoring now becomes mobile; data analysis can now be accessed anywhere you go even if you’re not on site. This is where the beauty and ease of use comes in; you’ll know if you’re exceeding your energy consumption target way before the monthly electricity bills arrive at your door. Therefore, you’ll be able to mitigate inefficient energy uses as early as possible.
If you’re curious about how Envision Monitoring works, it starts with your meter. We capture real-time data from your meter and send it to the cloud using devices that transmit data. Our software then receives data and stores it in a database, where data can be analyzed. You’ll get your daily energy statistics, including parameters that will be useful for further calculations.
The devices used in the Envision Monitoring System are all industrial-grade; you’ll never have to worry about its durability and weatherproof capability.
