Individuals living in master-metered dwellings consume more electricity than their counterparts living in single-metered dwellings. Part of the reason is that individuals in master-metered dwellings do not have a direct economic incentive to conserve energy. A sample of master-metered and single-metered individuals is examined to provide some guidance in formulating appeals to achieve energy conservation.
