Carbon Tracer app promises to give consumers the power to curb their emissions

A new app launched this week by Western Power Distribution (WPD) and the Carbon Trust is aiming to put power back into consumers hands by providing them with up to date information on the carbon footprint of their electricity. The app, known as 'Carbon Tracer', is available to download from the Google Play and Apple stores. It allows consumers served by WPD to see in real-time how much of their electricity is being produced by renewables and the amount of CO2 being generated to deliver their power at any given time.
