Think Progress: “Must Download”
Clean Technica: “I’ve got the app running on my iPad right now, and it’s a slick creation.
Green Biz- “By sliding your finger, you can witness decades of U.S. energy production -- including wind, solar, coal and oil -- and you can compare states to find out which are the most energy efficient.”
Tech President: “…the cool thing is that the next time you see a member of Congress speaking on energy policy, you'll be able to quickly figure out which sector of the energy industry they're trying to protect or woo to their state by using this app.”
