"Those Energy Star homes sound fantastic Steven, and certainly all new homes should be built for efficiency. I think your comment about showing "the utility billing difference” is right on the money. If we can help people understand how…"

"Thanks for the great feedback David! I have played around with the Home Energy Yardstick a bit, but not for a few years –- the yardstick is definitely more similar to what I’m doing now than it was when I looked at it in the past. It…"

"Keith, I like the user interface that you have created. If the user is entering bills manually like I was it's nice to be able to enter the annual usage as a lump sum rather than be asked to enter it month by month, which is not needed for this…"

Wanted: Operational Rating System Feedback

Hi all, I'm hoping to get some feedback on an operational rating system for homes that I developed and have recently made available through a web application. I'm calling these ratings OPEN Ratings, and they assess how efficiently a home is operating by analyzing energy consumption and benchmarking it against models that take into consideration the age and size of the home, number of occupants, climate, etc. This benchmarking results in a simple…See More
