Traditional utility bills are difficult to read and full of unneeded information. Consumers lack the relevant information that will help them manage utility costs and make smart decisions about consumption. VELObill makes it easy and rewarding to use Green Button data. With just a few clicks, consumers can view their utility usage, measure whether it is high or low, compare it to that of their peers and examine ways to save money. With this useful information in-hand, users will create an energy saving action plan and decide whether to change consumption habits or seek an infrastructure upgrade to their home. <object style="height: 390px; width: 640px"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/WuFdRd5ZKtQ?version=3&feature=player_embedded"><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always"><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/WuFdRd5ZKtQ?version=3&feature=player_embedded" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" allowScriptAccess="always" width="640" height="360"></object>
