Now you can be the smarter energy user you've always wanted to be
An informed consumer is an engaged and empowered energy user. The Green Button data gathered via smart meter technology and presented in easy-to-use and intuitive apps is truly game changing. With it, each one of us has the ability to understand our individual consumption behavior and compare it to similar households. Best of all, we have the power to make positive changes that will reduce and/or shift usage to save money.
Bill Disaggregation Breaks Down Our Household Consumption Device By Device
Green Button Connect My Data participants can finally see through the lump sum at the bottom of their energy bill and have consumption quantified by appliance. What appliances are always running? How much does the space heater really cost? What effect does changing the furnace filter have? Armed with answers to these types of questions, we can shift usage to off peak hours for high consuming appliances and chores and perform necessary maintenance. We can also make sound cost benefit decisions on which appliances to replace first, and which new appliance to purchase in order to maximize efficiency.
Not long ago, remote control wasn't even a remote possibility, now it's here to stay
Imagine being able to remotely control the heating and cooling settings of your house as easily as you can remotely start your car.
With Green Button, you can. Green Button enabled in-home devices and appliances enable customers to manage energy usage in their home from the comfort of the cottage dock. It's the kind of 21st century technology that makes smarter energy usage easy, effortless and completely accessible.
Together we can make a difference that far outweighs individual savings
It's true and important that we can all make changes in our individual homes and, by doing so, become smarter energy users that save money. But perhaps the most valuable outcome of being a Green Button participant is the collective difference we can make to the world in which we live.
As extended families, communities, neighbourhoods, towns, cities and nations, the positive impact we can have on the environment will be felt for generations to come.
