Energy consumption is on everybody’s mind, but how can we stop just talking the talk and start walking the walk when it comes to making a difference?
We stumbled on this awesome video for a new smartphone app called Quinzee that promises to allow you to track your home’s energy consumption. With Quinzee, your home reports to you using data from your smart-meter. As you may know, every home in Ontario has a smart meter that gathers detailed info about energy use.
This is definitely a cool idea and we’re hoping to give it a try sometime. It’s also just one of many ways that your smartphone can be used as more than an anywhere-email checker or a tool that mitigates awkwardness when you have no one to talk to at a party.
