Green Launching Pad

Last week I attended the Green Launching Pad event in Portsmouth New Hampshire. This is an intiative co-sponsored by Dartmouth College and The University of New Hampshire to fund start-up companies that have products that will lower power consumption, pollution and so on. One of the products is a smart meter to gauge the amount of fuel oil in a customer's tank. Currently the oil company must make about 20 trips to a customer a year to make sure they do not run out of heating oil. With these smart meters installed, this will reduce the number of yearly trips to 7 - clearly a more efficient proposition for the oil company, the highways and the customer.
