Con Edison Adds APOGEE's Tools To Its Energy Efficiency Program

ATLANTA, April 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Con Edison has added APOGEE's online tools to their website,, as part of its "The Power of Green" campaign, to help customers evaluate their energy use and find ways to save on their energy costs.

Con Edison's customers can now visit their "Energy Toolkit" to find answers to their energy questions.  With a few inputs, the Home EnergyCalculator™ 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.

"We recently began an energy efficiency campaign that offers our customers tips for saving energy," said Customer Outreach Advocate Moses Awekey. "These tools take our program to that next step – showing our customers the dollar value of energy efficiency.  When they can see the effects on their bill, they will be more likely to make those recommended changes."

APOGEE's Billing Insights™ 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 complex module incorporates local weather with home construction standards and automatically integrates with the customer billing data to produce a personalized energy report.  

"Con Edison serves a diverse city landscape," remarked APOGEE's Co-Founder and Chief Software Architect Joel Gilbert. "Our software accommodates virtually all housing types, showing homeowners how they can make specific behavioral changes and/or home improvements to lower their energy costs."
