How Would You Use Your Mobile Device to Save Energy?

January 20, 2011 - 6:30am


On Tuesday, Shannon told you about some mobile tools on that can help you find and compare fuel efficient vehicles.

More and more, people are using their phones and mobile devices to find information, whether they're on the go and need the info now or if they're just at home and choosing to use a phone instead of a computer. Whatever the reason, we know that mobile information and tools are important.

Maybe you would find an energy-saving app useful when you're in a store comparing products, or wondering if a product is eligible for an incentive. Maybe you'd like to follow do-it-yourself instructions from your phone when you're working on an energy project around the house. Maybe you'd like to use an app to conduct an energy assessment and keep track of your home energy improvements.

These are just a few ideas we've had for how mobile apps could help you save energy, but we'd like to hear yours.
