Hi, I'm looking for a solution to monitoring how much electricity my garage uses. The power is run from my house to my detached garage. Is there a meter I can buy like the power company uses to monitor how much electricity is sent over from the house to the garage?

Thanks in advance.

You can also go here: http://www.hialeahmeter.com/
and get a utility-style and grade meter and round socket for around $40 including shipping to monitor your garage power use.

If you are feeding the garage with 120/240 to a subpanel (or using a properly wired MWBC) connection is very easy. If your garage feed is a single circuit of 120v only they have a diagram on the site http://www.hialeahmeter.com/wiring-diagrams.html showing how to properly connect the standard meter (known as "Form 2S") for 120v only usage.
