KeyLogic Systems, (through its participation in DOE’s “Apps for Energy” Challenge), developed a Green Button application called Kill-Ur-Watts that permits residential customers to view, track, and manage their residential electricity use over time. This application utilizes common industry-based concepts and third-party data to empower residential users to make informed decisions on energy reduction strategies and implement common-sense energy efficiency improvements.
The KeyLogic Kill-Ur-Watts application quickly imports Green Button data and provides the residential user with information about their home's electricity use.
Kill-Ur-Watts allows users to:
View hourly, daily, and monthly home energy consumption profiles
View yearly energy costs and average residential electrical rate
View appliance distributions by major category (i.e., Heating / Cooling, Appliances, Lighting, Electronics, and Other) and compare them to national averages
Calculate home energy score (and carbon footprint) compared to national averages for a typical home
Understand home activities and appliances that drive consumption and make informed decisions to change behaviors
Link to home energy efficiency tools such as ENERGY STAR
Use social media outlets to challenge other users to reduce energy consumption
