Yep, these exist! There are apps that you can downlaod for your smart phone that can track how much energy you use on a regular basis. This comes in very handy for our customers who want to achieve that goal of energy efficiency but just can’t seem to do it.
You can definitely be a wiser consumer with the Wiser EMS app. This app – called Wiser EMS but short for Wiser Energy Management System – does the hard work for you. It shows you what amount of consumption you’re using, as well as providing tips for changing habits.
With the Energy Tracker app, it’s as simple as it sounds. It tracks the energy you’ve used, but it also allows for you to gather the information – the data of usage – and make it into a file that is printable. Maybe you could print that out and put it on your fridge as a reminder!
And finally, one of the most popular ones is Kill-Ur-Watts. This smartphone app is free! It allows you to track your energy usage, and like the others, gives suggestions for helping your new change of lifestyle.
Your Pocket Computer Comes in Handy
Your cell phone, i.e. your pocket computer, isn’t just a message, phone call, and social media machine; it’s also a way for you to tap into resources that are available for energy efficiency!
