    Introducing... Welectricity!


    We're pleased to introduce Welectricity; a free service that helps you track and reduce your electricity consumption at home.

    Welectricity is designed around a couple of basic ideas:

    1. It’s a network

    In order for you to reduce your consumption, you need a few simple things. You need information about your consumption. But, studies have shown that information by itself won’t help you much. You also need to get feedback, you need the ability to compare your consumption to others like you and you need to be able to set goals and make plans for reducing your electricity use. So, we designed Welectricity as a social network that provides these things.

    2. It’s low-carbon

    You don’t need a smart meter to use Welectricity. You don’t need an in-home energy monitor. No new stuff needs to be manufactured, packaged, shipped, purchased, driven out to your home and installed. All you need is access to an internet-connected computer and your electricity bills. After all, what’s the point of using a whole lot of energy and carbon emissions to bring you a bunch of new stuff that’s meant to help you use less energy and emit less carbon?

    We think of it as our little contribution to the planet – and we’re honored to be able to bring it to you on Earth Day 2010. We hope you enjoy it.
