Thanks to EnerWisely, I’m much more aware of how I use energy around the house. Who would’ve known that my pool took up so much of my overall consumption? What I found most helpful was the clear consumption breakdown and the ability to track my progress after going through everything. For a forgetful person like myself, the fact that EnerWisely provides reminders about plan expirations was a total bonus!
As a new user, I found the application to be super simple and easy to navigate through. Loved how EnerWisely does all of the thinking for you and compares plans so that you don’t have to! Not to mention that the weekly updates really helped me with budgeting and finding an environmental balance. I also found it cool how the dashboard breakdowns at the end really tied everything together and let me get a bird’s-eye view of how I’m doing.
Before using EnerWisely, I didn’t know what to expect, but I’ve been pleasantly surprised! It gave me so much insight on what I can do to lower my spending and save more money. Instead of just saying that you’ll save in general, EnerWisely actually reveals your exact savings per year. It also showed me where my electricity consumption tends to fluctuate. For example, I could see that in the summer, when my kids are at home more, my costs went way up. Using that information, I was able to pay more attention to my rates during that particular time and pick a plan that fit our family life better!
As someone who is pretty eco-conscious, I especially appreciated how the application showed the environmental impacts of my energy usage. Part of the reason I’m with my current plan is because they have a green plan, but it’s still hard to calculate my carbon footprint by myself. I really liked that I could see the renewable energy content and thought that the section about offsetting trees did an awesome job of using a real life example to put the information into relatable terms.
The level of personalization that we got from EnerWisely is something that we’ve never seen anywhere else before! We loved that we could just plug in all of our information and get very detailed results that were specific to us. Honestly, we can’t think of any other site that tells you both where you’re wasting energy and how you can reduce that. We also liked how user-friendly and “homey” it was and didn’t feel as if we were being forced through the process. For all of that, it was a definite thumbs-up from us!
