Welectricity is a web based, social networking application which will be used to promote energy efficiency in the Caribbean. It will allow users to contribute information on their energy consumption habits, which can then be compared against their peers. It is hoped that website will act as a behavioral tool, giving users the psychological incentive to reduce their consumption. People who use the website will also be able to post energy saving solutions, text, photographs and videos describing the ways in which they conserve energy and save money. The Beneficiaries of the project will be all the households within the Caribbean who become members of the network. Prices for electricity in the Caribbean are amongst the highest in the world. The ability to reduce household expenditure at no cost will relieve the pressure many feel in paying for energy. Indirectly, this reduced energy consumption will have positive effects on the national economy and the environment.
