Earn Rewards For Saving Energy At Home

Here’s an interesting way to be rewarded for using less natural gas, electricity and water.Earth Aid

A new Web site called Earth Aid tracks your utility bills to see if you’re consuming less energy and water than you did a year earlier.

If you are, you earn points that can be redeemed for discounts at local merchants. In my area, for example, breweries, restaurants, bars, salons, spas and even hotels are taking part.

The program is free and can automatically accesses your utility records, so you don’t have to enter any data or submit any bills to verify that information.

The only drawback is the Earth Aid is still building its reward network. Some cities, such as Washington, D.C., have lots of participants. Others don’t.

But founder Ben Bixby expects to announce Earth Aid’s first national partners in a few weeks. So even if there aren’t any nearby stores or restaurants to redeem your points, you’ll still be able to cash in for cutting back.
