Being environmentally cautious while saving time and money is getting easier these days as a growing number of utilities are opting to provide their customers not only with electronic billing and payment solutions, but with smartphone applications as well. Led by electric utilities, the trend is definitely gaining momentum across various industries, including water.
A new app designed for iOS and Android helps users analyze their use of energy, water and gas, which also results in financial savings, according to energyrefuge.com.
