WAKE FOREST — Green Button is the common-sense idea that electricity customers should be able to securely download their own easy-to-understand energy usage information from their utility or electricity supplier.
Wake Electric has joined other utility services by providing the Green Button on its website. Wake Electric is the first utility in North Carolina to offer the Green Button data interface. With it, Wake Electric members can now view their electricity usage from wemc.com.
This information is provided in a standardized format that is intended to increase awareness of energy use, and to allow third parties to develop applications to give Wake Electric members information and tools to manage their energy costs.
By using the Green Button, Wake Electric members will be able to view an overall summary of their electricity usage over the past 13 months and provide electricity usage data to third parties in a standardized format. This is intended to help members determine how energy efficient their homes are.
Wake Electric members can download their data by visiting wemc.smarthub.coop.
