Opower monthly report
Opower is focused on home energy efficiency, but company executives believe that more attention should be paid to people than devices. It collects and analyzes utility customers' bills and provides customized reports and recommendations on how to shave consumption. One of the key features is giving people access to a portal where they can see how their energy usage compares to neighbors. These reports and recommendations drive small cuts in individual household energy, but over millions of people the impact is significant. A 2 percent cut in energy use in half the homes of the U.S. would be an equivalent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions to the entire output of solar and wind power right now, according to Opower CEO Dan Yates.
