Posting data to emoncms.org is currently free but we will be implementing a pay as you use price plan in the medium term.
Our present proposal is to implement a pay-per-feed model with costs in the region of £1-2 per feed per year. For customers of OpenEnergyMonitor hardware, emoncms.org accounts will be automatically credited with credit based on a percentage of total order spend. Emoncms credit will be applied retrospectively for past OpenEnergyMonitor shop order spend. Exact feed cost have not yet been finalised and are likely to change over the coming months as we assess the impact of different costs. They are provided here as an advanced indication. For full details see forum post OpenEnergyMonitor goals 2018/2019.

Backing up your data:
To backup your energy data use the guide here Emoncms backup
We will not use your data for advertisment purposes or sell it on to anyone else. You can port your data to another server and you can delete feed data permanently from the emoncms.org server as you require.
At present, no guarantee is given that in the event of a emoncms.org bug or failure no data will be lost. Or that data stored on emoncms.org is fully secure. We cannot be held liable for any damages caused by the use of or failure of emoncms.
Last but not least
We hope emoncms.org is useful for you!
We would love to hear how you use it, particularly any stories about monitoring and understanding zero carbon energy systems.
