WattzOn offers web and mobile solutions to help partners engage people in energy and water savings, featuring automated utility data connections and personalized savings plans.
What We Do
WattzOn helps people save energy and water at home. Our web and mobile tools include personalized recommendations and savings plans, useful product and rebate information, and tips for easy habit changes. This whole-house picture works. WattzOn's typical user saves nearly $240 per year in energy cost, and participants in our water programs save an average of 9,000 gallons per year.
WattzOn helps people save on gasoline expense. American families average 2 cars per household, with gasoline spending of over $2500 per year — even at our low 2015 prices. Want to save money, save energy and save carbon? Buy a high miles-per-gallon car. WattzOn provides the tools to evaluate gasoline spending, comparing current and potential cars. There are an amazing number of great choices.
Why We Do It
Improving the household budget. American families spend more on energy (gasoline and utility bills) than they do on property taxes or healthcare. And energy is the only one of the three expense items that can be reduced. WattzOn brings all the pieces together, so that families can gain control over energy spending.
Improving our communities. Roll up household savings into a community profile, and see the large aggregate impact of a small amount of savings per household. The numbers are compelling: Read how a town of 80,000 can create 200+ jobs through easy energy savings. We're proud to help our partners — cities, employers and businesses — meet broader goals through energy savings.
We had two audacious goals when we started WattzOn.
First, we wanted to reduce energy use at home. Energy, unlike carbon, energy savings are clearly countable and progress is clear. Also energy is a pocketbook issue, with the typical U.S household spending more than $4,500 per year directly on energy (utility bills and gasoline.)* So tracking energy savings is a win-win, for the planet and for our user.
We started with home energy savings because if a WattzOn user starts saving at home, they will demand the same from their work, their schools and their community. Our users will be agents of change.
Second, we believe energy savings is not a utility issue, but one that is meaningful and profitable in many settings. Hence, our innovative business model. We have chosen not to sell to utilities. We sell to other organizations — companies, cities, and military bases — that need an expert partner to take the confusion out of energy efficiency.
We serve the entire U.S. — with every user experience localized and personalized — so that our business partners can integrate energy savings into their national rollouts. With Wattzon there is no need to build hundreds of utility partnerships to go national. It's a different way of thinking about the power of energy savings.
With such audacious goals, you won't be surprised to find a smart, hard-working and innovative team at WattzOn. We think out of the box, and we're making a difference. It's a nice way to start each day. Meet WattzOn: we're a high-powered team on a big mission.
