Our View

Behind Our Energy was created to help explain how we use electrical energy around the home and how we can begin to use it more wisely. Utility companies for years have been in the business of selling a product called the kilo-watt-hour (kWhr) and encouraging customers to use more and more of this product. To make matters worse this is a product that we can't see, hear, feel, or smell so there is no real indication as to what it's doing, when it's doing it, or where it's going. Sounds like a great product to sell!

Not only is it a product that you don't have to pay for until long after it is used, there is really no way of knowing what you use until the end of the month, and there is no way to take or give the product back. Sounds like a great product to sell!

Stay with us on this blogging journey and we will help to explain what your kWhrs are doing, when they're doing it, and where they're going. The bottom line is that if you practice just a few of the many useful tips scattered throughout this blog you can save money, time, and energy.

As the saying goes we will tell you "what your utility company won't tell you".
