We're working on a page that will act as a directory to help users sort through the best ways to save energy. We've already written a free energy saving guide which I think is one of the best tools out there for beginners to energy saving. For those who want to dig a little deeper in saving energy, and maybe want to take on some projects themselves, we've covered an energy saving guide that Southface put together for you.
As I try and think through how to present energy saving tips to users from all different regions, I naturally turn to Google. On the first page of Google hits for the term "Save Energy" there are some helpful pages, but for some reason I'm just not impressed. The posts are either way too basic (i.e. turn off your lights), too disorganized (several paragraphs on what to do but no flow), don't tell users how to follow through on harder tips, or just not engaging.
Most of the links don't mention home energy monitoring, the strong relation of energy consumption to climate, how to follow through on harder tips (like insulating your home), what are the best products and where to buy those products.
So that's what we're thinking about. How to pull all of that info together so those interested in saving energy can find out how no matter if they are an energy noob or an energy guru.
The internet is an amazing tool for hosting content. Unfortunately it isn't always organize or presented effectively (hence our purposely cluttered post image).
What does your ideal energy saving page look like? What information do you want to see and how can it be helpful to you?
