Energy Education

Empowering People

Energy is personal; it affects and empowers the things we do in our daily lives. At the same time, our decisions about what type of energy we use and how we use it, determine our bills and our climate impact. For too long, the data that people generate as they consume energy has created little value and insight to help inform our mindsets and expectations as consumers, which ultimately shape the energy industry itself. The more people understand, the more we will expect personalized services and cleaner energy. And the energy industry will have to evolve and adapt to respond to those higher expectations. Bottom line, the energy consumers have a lot of power in their hands. EnerWisely helps people turn their data into savings and gives them the knowledge and tools to use their power to choose wisely.

Resources and information are vital in empowering People to make the best decision for themselves and their families. EnerWisely is committed to giving you access to not only the best-tailored Energy plan for you but also the most actionable energy knowledge that is easy to digest without having a Ph.D. degree in rocket science.

Energy Education: Literacy – Essential Principle

Energy Education requires energy literacy, defined by the U.S. Department of Energy as an understanding of the nature and role of energy within our planet earth, local communities, and our daily lives. Energy literacy is an important truth to mentally grasp as newer types of energy (e.g., wind, solar, and geothermal) become more widespread. At the same time, unique pathways will make sure of its most efficient use and sustainability. In the end – this is what the world community makes great efforts to meet. Also, more advanced and novel ways to make full use of these energy types are continuously under development, too.

The carbon energy industry is responsible for more than two-thirds of the emissions that cause climate change. This has a direct effect on the planet’s environmental health, and ultimately, human health. Once energy literacy becomes more commonplace, simple analytic tools will offer different levels of feedback and allow for smart, feasible decision-making. This in-turn will add to the global community’s goal of reducing carbon emissions.
