Dynamhex shows each building owner and resident in Roeland Park tangible steps that they can use to reduce their carbon footprint or environmental impact, which the tool measures as carbon emissions given off from their energy use (electricity, natural gas or other fuels used in buildings, or gasoline from transportation). By identifying sources of energy wastage, such as from poor insulation, or old equipment, each Roeland Park resident can lower their bills while lowering emissions. Beyond replacing structures or equipment, various behavioral measures such as energy conservation - turning off lights when not in use, using timers and smart thermostats to regulate heating and cooling, etc. can save lots of energy and money. These same activities also directly reduce the footprint of each resident and lowers their impact on the environment.
