UtilityAPI just joined forces with Silicon Valley Clean Energy to jump into the future of clean energy.
UtilityAPI took our existing mission — fast, easy access to utility data — and added a certain four letter word: F-R-E-E. Now, thanks to SVCE’s Data Hive, you all have one less thing to worry about when starting a new clean energy project.
Previously, as many of you already know, getting a quote for going solar, installing an electric vehicle charger or making an energy efficiency upgrade frustrated providers and customers alike.
In order to accurately quote the project, providers needed energy data. However, if/when the required data did arrive, it was often incomplete, old, or in an unusable format. SVCE and UtilityAPI have banished that irritating experience with their flagship pilot, SVCE’s Data Hive.
Here’s how it works: solution providers simply register with SVCE to be listed in their Data Hive directory. The process is simple. It takes only a couple of minutes. So far, about three dozen clean energy providers have jumped at the chance to register. [You can register, too!]
Once listed, providers can request data from their prospective customers in the SVCE service area. The customers will simply have to authorize their data to be shared. They will no longer have to provide their username and password with the utility. The SVCE Data Hive will provide instant, authorized, secure and FREE access to the customer’s standardized energy data.
To be clear, this is the exact same high quality data you used to have to pay UtilityAPI to get. Only now, it’s free, thanks to SVCE’s innovative leadership in clean energy projects. Welcome to the future.
Which utility is next? We know but we can’t say… yet. Stay tuned.
All blog posts are to help UtilityAPI users connect with their customers and successfully collect their utility data.
