Using the Internet to Stay Informed about Energy
A new tool, the INTERNET, has arrived on the scene to help everyone who has anything to do with energy: the energy user, the utilities, the equipment manufacturers, energy management firms, and energy brokers. The INTERNET is useful to the same degree for both large companies and small, one person or a Fortune 500 business. What is the INTERNET? It is a powerful communications tool whereby anyone can contact anyone else, worldwide, to either provide or reuieve information. Using the existing telephone system, a computer with modem and proper software, and a connecting source, called a server, an individual can retrieve any information, including energy information, that exists on the INTERNET in a site called a "home page". A "home page" or "Web page" is the INTERNET presence of a company or person, written in HTML computer language, that describes in words and pictures whatever it is that it's owner wishes to display about him/her/itself.
