Electricity sharing is not a common practice among households. Though it can be done through connecting power generators on rooftops through for example wind turbines and solar panels, and connecting these to the central grid or by creating a local grid among certain households.
Distributed forms of electricity production such as solar-panels and wind-turbines make it easy to share electricity.
The Qbox is a device that has been in production since 2007. It observes your energy production and consumptions, and makes it possible to share capacities with your neighborhood, or cluster. It can take into account the energy rates, however varying they may be, government subsidies, your production and consumption profiles and personal preferences you might have. All without you having to look after it.
