PG&E customers compete to conserve with Facebook app

San Francisco, April 3, 2012 — Pacific Gas and Electric Co. customers can now share and compare their energy use with friends around the nation on Facebook with a new social energy application.

The app, created by Opower in partnership with Facebook and the Natural Resources Defense Council, provides insight into individual energy use while fostering friendly competition.

To get started, PG&E customers can visit social.opower.com or search for the "Opower" app on Facebook and connect their utility account.

Customers who sign up will see how their home energy use compares to others with similar homes. As friends are invited and join in, people will then be able to engage in savings competitions.

PG&E customers with a smart meter and My Energy account can get a leg up on their competition by logging onto pge.com/myenergy to view hourly electric data, gaining insight to further conserve energy.
