Paying People to Conserve
Lowfoot members in Texas can now look forward to receiving monthly PayPal™ payments if they successfully reduce their electricity consumption. Lowfoot has been distributing payments for 12 months in Ontario, Canada, has recently launched in California and the concept is beginning to take off. Backstopping the reward program is the idea of creating a community of conservers using Lowfoot’s patent pending technology and leveraging social media. Lowfoot members can share their daily updates with their friends on Twitter or on Facebook.
Aside from getting the benefit of earning cash to conserve, most Lowfoot members also see a reduction in their energy bill. For people living paycheck-to-paycheck lowering their electricity bill can make a big difference to their monthly finances.
Quick Facts About Lowfoot:
How much does Lowfoot Cost? Lowfoot is absolutely free to use.
How Does Lowfoot Make Money? Lowfoot sells advertising by pre-selling Lowfoot Credits to cover the cost of the coming month’s reductions. The purchasers of Lowfoot Credit’s receive premium-advertising placements in daily notifications, and in the Lowfoot, Facebook™ and Twitter™ feeds. Lowfoot also sells advertising on its main web site.
Why does Lowfoot Pay more for reductions in Peak Periods? Lowfoot is focused on having our members getting the biggest bang for their buck. Reducing usage during a utility district’s peak usage periods represents a high value reduction for the utility. Eventually Lowfoot will participate in demand response programs. Having a ready pool of electricity reduction available will help achieve this goal.
Is Lowfoot Legal? In the United States and Canada it has been clarified that the data from the smart meter belongs to the consumer or, at the very least, the consumer has the right to access the data from the smart meter. Lowfoot members assign Lowfoot as their agents to access their smart meter data.
