In home electricity consumption monitoring with Kill-a-Watt

This project originally came for Ladyada’s Tweet-a-Watt project, and was adapted for the RasperryPi by Drew Fustini of Element14. It currently calculates the cost and KWatts/hour aggregates, as well as current Watt usage for each of the three data collection points. It then pushes that data to Xively’s data-viz website. I’ve added to the project by updating the code to: accommodate for Cosm’s change over to Xively,  include two more Kill-a-Watts, and scraping my local energy companies website for the current cost of electricity every five minutes.
