Green Gadget Tweets Your Power Usage

20090306-tweet-a-watt
The Tweet-a-Watt just won the 2009 Greener Gadgets Design Competition. It uses off-the-shelf hardware that was a modified Kill-a-Watt(TM) power meter to “tweet” the daily KWH consumed to the user’s Twitter account.

This project has been released as an open source hardware project that anyone can make. Here’s the link to Makezine.com.
