Conserving energy… through Facebook

Conserving energy… through Facebook

Stuck for ideas about how to reduce your energy use at home? Well you might be in luck. Social networking giant Facebook has teamed up with the Natural Resources Defence Council, Opower and 16 utilities to create an online app to help track and decrease energy use across America.

With an initial reach of 20 million households, the app allows people to quickly and easily start benchmarking their home’s energy use against similar homes“, a Facebook memo read.

People can also compare their energy use with friends, enter energy-saving competitions and share tips on becoming more energy efficient.”

You can get involved here, but remember, it’s only for users in the US at the moment.
