Welectricity is a web-based, social networking service intended to help consumers to track and reduce their household energy consumption.
Welectricity is a simple, free online service that helps you track and reduce your electricity consumption at home. It’s designed around a few basic ideas.
The first idea is that in order for you to reduce your consumption, you need a few simple things. You need information. But, studies have shown that information by itself won’t help you much. You also need to get feedback; you need the ability to compare your consumption to others like you and you need to be able to set goals and make plans for reducing your electricity use at home. So, we designed Welectricity as a social network that provides these thing.
Welectricity was developed by Herbert A Samuel of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and was a winner of the 2009 Global VIllage Energy Partnership IDEAS Energy Contest.
