Energy Consumption of Home Appliances

Hello everyone,

I would like to ask for your opinion on the best way to go about a project that we are doing. It basically is tracking the consumption of energy by appliances in a house, and graphing them real time. Just by using a microcontroller, what would be the best way to do this? Since the appliances have their consumption ratings, I would just need to save thos ratings and create some sort of mechanism to monitor and measure the time that they are on, and since there are a lot of appliances, i would need to have a transmitter of sorts.


Any suggestions/ideas? Thanks a lot!
