But shouldn’t utility data be free, easy, secure and accurate for everybody, everywhere?
Your dream utility data: accurate, secure, free, and available when you want it. And the kicker: easy.
Some of you are already living the dream with Silicon Valley Clean Energy and UtilityAPI’s joint pilot, the Data Hive. 50 solution providers have already jumped at the chance to sign up for their free data. [You can too. Sign up here.]
In Greentech Media’s April 13th piece, UtilityAPI’s CEO, Devin Hampton, shared that any utility can easily use our software. This software blazes a trail toward the cooperative, decarbonized future that the Obama administration’s Green Button initiative imagined.
“We built this software to be drop-in software; any CCA, IOU, muni, co-op, should be able to implement it with a minimal setup,” he said. “It should be seamless, no matter what the system is.”
GTM described the simplicity of the Data Hive’s sharing process. “With a few clicks, SVCE customers can authorize one of these companies to obtain and analyze their historical and ongoing 15-minute smart meter interval energy usage data.”
No account numbers needed. No customer passwords (though your customer needs to authorize data sharing). And perhaps best of all, no waiting.
All blog posts are to help UtilityAPI users connect with their customers and successfully collect their utility data.
