JACKSON — Utility Management Corporation is now offering a free online energy-tracking tool. The free website, called GreenQuest, is a personal energy dashboard that enables community members to track and analyze the energy use for their home or place of business. According to Howard Randolph, president of Utility Management, the company is providing GreenQuest to the community in order to educate, raise awareness and promote energy conservation.
At community residents can: track their energy use and cost; compare their building with its peers; evaluate energy saving projects; track their carbon footprint; analyze energy use with AccuWeather weather data; and, as an option, obtain an ENERGY STAR building rating (for commercial buildings).
“We use an energy management software program to track the utility bills for all of our client’s buildings and have found it to be invaluable. When you want to save energy and reduce your expenses, the first step is to track your usage. With GreenQuest, we’re giving every household and business in the community a powerful tool to do the same thing,” said Randolph.
