The Green Screen Home energy management system is an information sensor system with a dashboard in each house that tracks energy use and saving. Using a kitchen or hallway monitor, homeowners can track energy use in real time. The feedback information includes their water, electrical, and gas use. The Green Screen, from Reed Green, is easy to operate and understand, delivering hourly, daily, weekly or monthly feedback from each area of the house.
Similar to the screen inside the Toyota Prius, the Green Screen is designed to change behavior through awareness of energy usage habits, so that owners will opt for shorter showers, late night washing machine use, and selective heating and cooling. Owners are always in touch with their home’s vital signs. This new relationship creates a sense of involvement and activism, and helps them educate others. Research has shown that when environmentally conscious users can connect their usage to their energy bills, they will consciously want to reduce their consumption, leading to savings of 15 percent or more per year, over and above the energy they are already saving in a Platinum level home.
