Energy Monitor Shield arrived

One of the projects I’m planning for code club is a power consumption monitor. After some research and checking of circuit diagrams the Energy Monitor Shield designed by devicter looked like it would work with a Netduino. The analog voltage inputs for the AC current sensors plus the SPI bus configuration for the Nokia 5110 display and nRF24L01+ appear to be compatible.

Initial impressions are good, only problem is the backlight is a little bit bright (so I removed the jumper).
