Global energy consumption achieved a historical record in 2009 when it was reduced by 1.5 percent. The reduction was attained for the first time since the Second World War.
For many years now, there have been aggressive campaigns worldwide and on the web to raise awareness on ways to lower energy consumption starting in the home. Up to this day, though, there are still people not very familiar with tools they can use to keep track of their power usage and help them save on their electricity bills.
The experts have pointed out that being in the know about one’s energy consumption can prompt consumers to take action in cutting their power bills. A new study has also confirmed that if homeowners have digital tools to set their preferred temperature and prices, electricity usage can be reduced by up to 15 year per year. If this is attained within a period of two decades, power plants and other infrastructure can save some $70 billion plus there would no longer be any need to set up coal-fired plants.
