My Electric Utility Company Does Something Cool — Really!

Okay, I’m something of an energy geek, but even my non-geek wife thought this was cool.  We recently got a mailing from Connexus Energy, our electric company, that showed how our home compared to 40,000 randomly selected others for electrical use. We received a GREAT rating (the two smiley faces) for using 4,436 kilowatt hours in 2008, roughly 30% less than the average home and a 15% reduction from 2007.  I also had a easy to understand chart that maps out our monthly use, the average use, and what they called “our efficent neighbors,” who represent the top 20% of the low-use crowd.

Anyone else get anything like this from their power company?

    Nope. I don’t think Excel sends smiley faces, but I get the feeling the mansion is a bit large to get into the group of top 20% of the low-use crowd.
