I know what you’re thinking. How could one person impact a whole neighborhood? Think back to that street sweeper in the orange experiment. “That one person sweeping the pavement had big influence. The beauty is that it’s one person doing that and giving an example. So you have an influence. And that should be a positive message there,” Keizer says. He's not the only one who's picked up on the fact that we can influence others through our behavior. Opower is a software company that collects data to help homeowners save money and energy through their utilities. It’s also running the largest behavioral science program in the world, analyzing utility data from 18 million homes worldwide. It uses that info to influence people to use less energy. How does Opower do it? For starters, the company tells people when their neighbors are using less energy than they are. The idea is based on research done by Robert Cialdini, a professor, that shows that neighbor comparison effectively motivates people to save energy. The behavioral science term for this type of comparison is "peer proof." “It’s a matter of understanding what your community is doing and feeling a normal interior pressure to do what your peers are doing,” says Roderick Morris, senior vice president of marketing and operations at Opower; he calls Opower a behavioral science company. To date the firm has saved users $320 million. “In 2013 we saved enough energy to take the city of Sacramento off the grid for a year,” Morris says.
