What the company is doing is creating a one of a kind interactive energy management system that will allow all homes to be able to save money as well as lower their carbon footprint. With energy costs rising and global warming a reality, we need to do out part to help ensure the energy needs of the people in the world.

If a very small fraction of homes lowered the amount of energy use we normally would use on a monthly basis by just 20%. Then in past year those people who lowered their reliance on energy as an average could save over 80 billion dollars on the energy costs as well as reduce the amount of emissions by nearly 100 million tons of carbon dioxide, can you image that? It is possible for this to happen. Depending on where you live in the United States, you can lower your amount of money you save on your energy bill by at least 30 to 40% on a monthly basis.

What are the benefits of Greenbox Technology?

The premise of Greenbox is an Internet based solution system that will allow you the homeowner to follow the amount of energy you are using. There are no companies tracking your usage other than the electric companies. But as a homeowner, with Greenbox Technology, you can track your family’s usage and if you see areas where the cost is going to be high when the bill comes in, then you have the control to lower your bills.

We never really know how much energy we are using until the bills come in. With Greenbox you will be able not only to see where your energy is going but with how we can control and manage our own home energy use and this could result in a lot of money you could be saving.

Not only will you see how much energy you are using but also with this latest technology you can see how much your bills are going to be. It may be a trial and error as a home owner for a while but the first month when your bills are a bit high then the following month you will be able to set a plan to lower those bills and this can all be done with Greenbox Technology.

The Greenbox system will also allow you to get some energy saving opportunities along the way. They will help you realize and understand ways to save energy that you never thought of. In terms of your carbon footprint, this is something that we never really think of. The Greenbox Technology will calculate the carbon footprint based on your energy usage profile so you can measure and take in the reality of how your activities are making an impact on the environment.

Another great feature of the Greenbox Technology is that you will be able to see what others in your neighborhood are spending and using on electricity. Of course you will be able to do this anonymously so that no one will ever know what you are doing. You will also receive a Greenbox alert that you can receive either via email or SMS. This will keep you updated about any unusually high-energy rates or any changes in electricity prices before you see them on your next bill.

Technology is a great thing and with technology comes advancement. Wouldn’t it be great if we could manage our own electric bills? Sure, we can turn off the lights and lower our energy costs by keeping our homes at a ridiculous temperature but with the Greenbox Technology we would not have to do that. There won’t be so many families who cannot afford their bills.

There may be some sacrifices that your family will have to make but to able to see what you are using before the bill comes it a great thing.
