Energy monitoring program is launched

New York state has quietly launched a campaign to promote energy efficiency and is seeking 50 families in the Capital Region to participate in a program that would measure their electricity usage in the home.

The program, called Jumpstart NY, is being promoted mostly through websites including Facebook, Twitter, craigslist and blogging sites in addition to classified advertising.

The monitor will send information to a website where the homeowner will be able to view his "real-time" electric usage and also spot where power is being wasted.
