At Consumers Energy we work hard to help you save energy and money, and now we’re making it social – thanks to Opower in collaboration with Facebook and the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC).
Check out the Opower social energy app today to compare your energy use with your friends’ use, view tips on how to save, and compete to see who can save the most. We’re making saving energy worthy of a status update.
Using Opower, you can track how your energy use compares to how much your friends use — as well as homes across the country that are similar to yours. Consumers Energy has made Opower easy to use by providing a “data connect” service that imports your past energy use, so you’re ready to compare, share, and save right away.
“We’re excited to offer our customers this opportunity to participate in a new, innovative way to learn about their energy use and share that information with friends,” said Patti Poppe, Consumers Energy’s vice president of customer experience and operations. “Customers can ‘Count on Us’ when it comes to providing them information about their energy use and savings opportunities.” Poppe said the app is a high-tech expansion of Consumers Energy’s energy efficiency programs that have helped customers save $67 million over the past two years.
With Opower, you can do more than compete with your friends — you can form teams to share in the savings while swapping energy saving tips and advice. Friendly competition is fun, but saving energy is good for everyone!
Spread the word and tell your friends to check out Opower today. As always, you can find great energy saving programs and ideas at Consumers Energy.
