Open Energy Monitor / DIY an Open Energy Monitor

Hi, I'm trying to conduct a smart home experiment and I need more than 50 sets of Open Energy monitor.

But I found the open energy monitor has to be shipped from the UK to the US. Can I buy the EmonTx in the US? And $100 per set of EmonTx is too expensive for me, I wonder if there are any producers selling similar products in the US? Or how much will it take me to produce one set of that?

Thank you!

The design is open-source so you should be able to use the published information to set up your own manufacturing process where you are. Essentially what you need to do is find a supplier who can use the Eagle CAD files and the parts lists to manufacture and assemble 50-off PCBs. If you go down that route, it would be a nice gesture to make a contribution towards the cost of the development work that Glyn & Trystan have done.
