Northeast Utilities will expand its Green Button energy tracking initiative from Boston to all six of its natural gas and electric subsidiaries, including Berlin-based Connecticut Light & Power and Yankee Gas.
The Green Button initiative was launched by the Obama Administration, asking utilities to allow customers to track their own energy usage data online.
NStar Electric implemented the Green Button initiative before it merged with NU in April. With the merger complete, NU plans to expand this program to all of its 3.5 million business and residential customers by the end of the year.
NU's various subsidiaries will post the Green Button to their Web sites and are developing smartphone apps for the data, as well as customized energy-efficiency tips, easy-to-use tools to size and finance rooftop solar panels, and virtual energy assessments.
