The Microsoft Hohm Scores is a new online tool that will help you snoop on your neighbors and how much energy they consume. The tool allows you to check energy levels about a home address, yours or someone else's.

The Hohm website claims that Hohm Scores uses information that is on the public record, like a home's location, average utility bills, size, and age. The main reason for the Microsoft Hohm Scores' energy-revealing tool is to get home owners to sign up for the Microsoft Hohm energy management system. Nonetheless, it's a very smart way to capitalize off of those gossipy neighbors. Stats for Neighbor-Snooping Tools Trending: Older & Mild
