New DOE tool will help you save money

The economy tanked and we all felt it. Now, as we all struggle to find ways to save, economists are going green to the find the answer. And, we actually don’t mind, because going green is the answer. I mean, who doesn’t want to save money nowadays?

As part of President Obama’s energy strategy to help families (and businesses) reduce their energy usage and costs, the Department of Energy has launched a new Utility Data Access Map tool. This new, interactive map enables electric companies from all over the country to show customers their electricity use.

“Many consumers don't have enough data or are not aware of the data they can access to make informed decisions about energy efficiency measures they could take to save money. Among those who do have access to their data, some lack the ability to share it with service providers who might help them identify energy savings opportunities and verify savings once improvements have been made.”

To date, more than 500 electric companies have signed on to use the tool. The cool thing about this new interactive map is this: customers now have a way to access their electricity usage, locally, and compare it with others in the state as well as the country. Thanks to the map, customers can now better manage their energy usage and work to save money on their monthly bill(s).
