The purpose of this report is to help consumers to save money with regard to their electrical bills. A number of energy saving possibilities is discussed, and through a collection of data from the power company, direct survey, and usability studies, we examine some of the options in detail. These possibilities include: a redesign of the power bill, a guide to help consumers understand appliance usage, and a device to help consumers gauge their electrical consumption between power bills.
