I’ll wager that Best Buy isn’t entering the Home Energy market out of altruism.
Retailer giant Best Buy is launching a modest push into home energy products, planning to sell gadgets that can help home owners cut their energy consumption, and have lower energy bills. Best Buy will sell the gear via dedicated sections of three of its brick and mortar stores and also through a new Home Energy portal on its website.
Regardless of their motives, this is good news.
Years ago, I discussed how people were going green to save green.
Myth 2: Green consumers’ main motivation when reducing their energy use is to save the planet.When asked the most important reason to reduce energy consumption, 73% chose â€œto reduce my bills/control costsâ€ and only 26% chose â€œto lessen my impact on the environment.â€
45% – have a more comfortable home
45.5% – save money
9.5% – help the environment
