Earlier this year at Google IO, Google announced that Google PowerMeter would be retired but they didn’t give many specifics. They’ve now followed up with details including a clear date when the service will be shutoff, Sept. 16, 2011. You can find the full list of reasons why the project was discontinued on the Google Blog
While this is unfortunate, SmarterMeter is able to migrate to another service as it keeps a copy of all your power data before it was uploaded to Google.
This means in the near future that SmarterMeter will need to switch to a new service for it’s graphing interface. I’ve heard of pachube but I’m wondering if there are other solutions worth looking at. Suggestions and/or volunteers are appreciated.
