Disappointed that there was little else to greet you than a sign-up page when Microsoft announced its household power management site Hohm? You weren’t the only one.
Luckily, it didn’t take them very long to open the floodgates. If you entered your email address, you got an alert that Hohm Beta is up and running. The text of that email is below…
Here’s the text of that email:
Microsoft is delighted to announce the availability of Microsoft Hohm. You are invited to sign up for Hohm and learn how you can start saving energy!
Microsoft Hohm is a free online beta application that helps you save energy and money. With Microsoft Hohm you can better understand your home energy usage, get recommendations to conserve energy and start saving. As with any recommendation engine, Hohm will provide increasingly more accurate and relevant suggestions for energy conservation as its users contribute home energy input and feedback. One of the objectives during our beta period is to refine our tool and further increase the value our product can offer to you. We hope you will help us!

As noted above, Hohm’s “recommendation engine” is reliant on crowdsourcing, so the more people that sign up and participate, the better it gets at delivering recommendations. With that in mind, are you going Hohm?
