In this paper, we propose Energy-conservation Social Networking Service (ESNS). To realize ESNS, we developed Intelligent Tap, which measures the power consumption of electrical appliances plugged in. With ESNS a user could monitor the power consumption of his/her possessing appliances by graph and could post opinions or comments about energy-conservations with the graphs as the evidence. The user of ESNS also could set up communities with other users who have same appliances. In this way, ESNS stimulates users' willingness to do energy conservation. To verify the effects of ESNS, we conducted experiments with subjects. As the results, we confirmed that the number of conversations and the willingness of energy conservation were increased when they used Intelligent Tap with ESNS.
