Earth Aid has developed the Mint.com for utilities - employing patent-pending technology to make it possible for all Americans to automatically link all their utility accounts in one place, at any resolution of data. Earth Aid leverages this new datastream to help folks identify new ways to save energy and water - & to entice them to do so with an innovative rewards program, launching in NYC soon.
