Did you know that 50% of your home’s energy use is driven by the weather? This is a little known fact, but if you give it a ponder, it all makes sense. When it’s cold and the winter winds are blowing, you most likely have the heater cranked up. When it’s hot and humid outside, your air condition is most likely blasting.
So, if you had the world’s largest weather observation network with real-time data — could you put that big data to work to help you get smarter on your HVAC use and help you reduce your bill?
The combination of our network and your smart meter data allows us to help you save dollars each month on their energy bill with our SmartHome ScoreCard. Armed with this data, we tell you exactly what you need to do to lower your bill and grow your wallet.
Currently, we have launched this innovative new program with San Diego Gas & Electric, with other energy providers to come soon. If you’d like more information, please visit http://earthnetworks.com/SmartHomeSignup.
