interactive House of Savings experience takes users through new rooms
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – As the summer heat reaches its peak, Florida Power & Light Company’s (FPL) revamped augmented reality experience can help customers save during the record-breaking heat. This year, the interactive House of Savings experience takes users through new rooms and shares fresh, easy to implement tips to save on your electric bill.
Participants can use their mobile device to move through the virtual home and answer energy-related questions to learn which appliances use the most electricity and see how small, unexpected changes like unplugging appliances or electronics can add up to big savings.
By answering all 10 questions correctly, customers will learn how to save more than $30 on their monthly energy bill.
New features included this year:
■ $100,000 Care To Share Donation – Each time a customer completes the House of Savings experience, $2 will be donated on their behalf, up to a total of $100,000, toward FPL’s Care To Share program. This program provides eligible customers who are in financial crisis with emergency bill payment assistance as well as helps those who need to make electrical repairs to their meter can or weather head. Every year, thousands of families are assisted by the Care to Share program, including those impacted by natural disasters.
■ Virtual Reality Compatibility – Customers can experience the FPL House of Savings using a compatible virtual reality (VR) device, including the Meta QUEST device or any VR device supporting webXR. Customers can access the VR experience at vr.houseofsavingsfl.com on their device.
