    Austin's Mueller community and Pecan Street, Inc. received national attention recently with a feature in TIME about its energy-saving research. Mueller's innovative tracking abilities allow Pecan Street to see the electricity used by homeowners on a minute-by-minute and appliance-by-appliance base. This type of data is groundbreaking and allows Pecan Street to adjust variables (such as solar power) to see its effects on both the use of energy, and the savings on the homeowners' power bill.
