"More than 10 percent of our 1.4 million customers log onto our online Energy Analysis tool regularly."
The Opinion Dynamics’ survey looked at 570,000 records, but reported only on consumers who completed their highest level of audit in a single day to allow for an accurate comparison of savings at each level.
The model used in the study compared customer consumption prior to participating in the energy analysis, looking for decreasing usage after completion of the analysis. It also compared individual to group usage and took into account weather and seasonal factors.
