We just launched Texas!

We've been working hard, and we just added Texas electricity rates to wattbuy.com! It isn't often that you get to add a whole state to your product, especially a Texas-sized state. We have electricity rates for Sharyland, AEP North, New Mexico Power, AEP Central, Oncor,  Nuces, and Center Point. Texas  is one of the largest and most advanced deregulated energy markets, so we are really excited that we can provide electricity options to all our Texan friends.

WattB wins second prize at Department of Energy Hackathon

WattB won second place at the Department of Energy sponsored hackathon on January 25th at 1776. The winning entry, WattZ, was a working iOS application that used an address (or iOS GPS) to pull Zillow house information, then estimated electricity usage based on the Building Performance Database. We'll try to incorporate this new feature into an upcoming version of WattBuddy!
