We are in that age and day when we can rely on technology to back us up in any endeavor that we choose to pursue. Available to smartphones and tablets are countless camera apps that allow us to explore everyday photography, sketch apps that enable us to improve on our drawing skills and imagination, and maps so that we may know our way around traffic and carmageddons. Apps have made their way into concerns of energy efficiency, as well. Not only are we provided with apps that optimize our gadgets’ and devices’ battery life, but we’re also given app options to better manage our electricity at home.
Aside from energy tips to cut down or lessen your monthly electric bill, equipping yourself with an energy-saving app should work wonders.
The Kuryente App is the official app of Kuryente.org.ph which is a website by the Department of Energy. The energy-saving app follows through with the website’s objective of informing and educating the public on the power sectors of the Philippines. As what a user is greeted with upon reaching its homepage, the app centers on everyone’s question in mind: “Magkano ba ang kuryente ko?” or “How much is my power consumption?” in English.
There are 2 tabs within the energy-saving app:
