It’s a proud day for us here at Microsoft as Seattle City Light announced today that it will offer its customers the ability to link their electricity consumption data with Microsoft Hohm, the online application that tracks energy use and provides personalized energy conservation recommendations.

It’s only fitting that Seattle City Light became the first as many Microsoft employees are customers of Seattle City Light. You can read more about the announcement here, here and here.

There are a number of other utilities across the United States who are working with us to offer Hohm to their customers and we look forward to making several more announcements in the future. Hohm will be a valuable component of a utility’s ability to take energy efficiency to the next level for consumers and eventually create demand response opportunities.

Announcements and partnerships like today's will make all of this possible. – Jon Arnold
