Con Edison adds Apogee tools to energy efficiency program

With a few inputs, the HomeEnergyCalculator in the kit accurately analyzes their home's energy use and makes recommendations for savings

Atlanta, April 5, 2011 — Con Edison has added Apogee's online tools to their website, to help customers evaluate their energy use and find ways to save on their energy costs.

Apogee Interactive is an energy analysis software firm serving utilities across the U.S.

Con Edison's customers can now visit their "Energy Toolkit" to find answers to their energy questions. With a few inputs, the HomeEnergyCalculator in the kit accurately analyzes their home's energy use and makes recommendations for savings.

The tool kit also features a variety of specialized calculators that allow customers to run "what if" scenarios on their use of lighting, appliances, TVs, and thermostat settings to see how much can be saved by making simple lifestyle changes.

Apogee's BillingInsights option within the toolkit explores energy use even more, answering questions such as, "Why did my bill change?" and "What are the largest and smaller energy users in my home?"

Powered by Apogee's Resnet accredited analysis system, the module incorporates local weather with home construction standards and automatically integrates with the customer billing data to produce a personalized energy report.
