    ATLANTA, April 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Colorado Springs Utilities'
 (www.csu.org ) customers are only a mouse click away from learning how they
 are using energy and what they can do to use it more efficiently.  The

 and install its online energy analysis and management applications, has
 released the application for residential customers on its Web site at

 their account information, conduct a do-it-yourself energy audit that provides
 personalized recommendations for energy efficiency, learn the latest about our
 programs and services, access a comprehensive Energy Library and much more.

 becoming more educated about the energy industry and are looking for ways they
 can easily access information about their account.  "We've found that energy
 companies are quickly moving to the Internet with interactive programs their
 customers can use to understand how they use energy, pay their bills, purchase
 products and services and much more," said Conlan.  He added that the country
 is seeing a resurgence in programs and applications that help utilities help
 their customers save energy, and that one economical way energy companies can
 help their customers gain control of their energy bills is presenting
 solutions via the Internet.
