In the US, the South Carolina Energy Office has launched a new online Energy Saver Tool and website.
The aim is to help consumers to easily find energy-saving programmes.
The tool and website have been built in partnership with state-owned digital services provider NIC South Carolina.
Using the tool, the Energy Office will ensure energy-saving initiatives are up-to-date by pulling comprehensive programme reports.
Consumers have been finding it hard and frustrating to find energy-saving programmes as this involved visiting multiple websites.
The tool offers an easy way for the public to answer a few simple questions and find energy-saving programmes available to them. Users can also search by category or by programme name to find specific programme information. Programmes and results are printable and can be shared by exporting to a PDF or Excel file.
In addition, the Energy Saver website includes energy-saving tips for homes and businesses in a user-friendly and easy-to-follow format.
Anthony James, the director of the Energy Office, said: “After discussions with stakeholders during our development of the State Energy Plan, we recognised the need for an organization to provide this resource and took on the challenge.
“EnergySaver.SC.GOV will make it easier for consumers to see what’s out there, and we’re happy to provide access to this valuable information.”
