Electricity consumption has continued to go up rapidly at a rate faster than energy consumption. All forms of electricity generation have impact on our environment. Using electricity more efficiently reduces both the amount of fuel needed to generate electricity and the amount of greenhouse gases and other air pollution emitted as a result. This paper proposes smart, integrated power consumption monitoring system that has been implemented with the use of open source standard technology. Just like commercial energy meter, this system can monitor electrical energy consumption from a remote distance with the technology of Internet of Things (IoT). This energy monitoring system using IoT will read the energy level and the consumer can check the energy consumption and the electric bill via Cloud platform such as ThingSpeak, MQTT and mobile app. The main target of this system is to reduce the high energy consumption. The consumer can reach out his/her energy consumption at anytime and anywhere in the world.
