Consumers can use Green Button data to identify and compare their energy usage in order to improve energy efficiency within their home or business.
By learning their usage patterns and habits, consumers can make informed choices about how much energy they use and when they use it. When consumers use energy during off-peak hours (also known as peak-shaving) and invest in energy-efficient appliances, it saves money and can help reduce strain on the grid.
Consumers can use their data to conserve energy to help reduce their carbon footprint and protect the environment. Green button tools to understand large volumes of energy data will help pave the way for future innovations in the energy sector.
With Green Button standards, consumers can rest assured that their data and private information is secure. Utilities must go through a strict testing and certification process to become Green Button standard-compliant.
