13 Mar 2018

Wisconsin Energy Conservation Corporation (WECC) has secured energyOrbit and its cloud software to scale the operational management of their energy efficiency and demand-side management (DSM) programs. Securing the new cloud platform allows WECC to provide the latest in modern energy efficiency technology solutions to its clients. By engaging with energyOrbit, organizations similar to WECC have realized improved efficiency and DSM operational savings by up to 75 percent.

"We are tapping the power of the energyOrbit platform because it's designed with energy efficiency and DSM operations in mind," said Mary Woolsey Schlaefer, WECC's President and CEO.  "With energyOrbit as our tool, we are building a stronger foundation for collaboration within WECC, and offering our clients new opportunities to increase engagement among their customer bases."

As a national leader in the design and implementation of energy efficiency and financing programs, WECC is utilizing features within the energyOrbit platform that allow it to streamline the tracking, analysis, and reporting of energy efficiency and demand-side management programs. As part of the solution rollout, WECC will leverage the new energyOrbit Marketplace portal to enhance customer engagement and increase participation in energy efficiency programs. The energyOrbit Marketplace will provide home and business owners with a simple and intuitive online experience when looking for energy efficiency rebates and incentives.

"Since 2007, we've been dedicated to bringing the very best in cloud-computing software and industry best practices to organizations managing energy efficiency and DSM programs," said Udi Merhav, founder, and CEO of energyOrbit. "By automating much of the administrative process, utilities, co-operatives and third-party implementers like WECC can better utilize the wealth of data and analytics they have on hand to enhance decision making and more strategically manage their operations - opening the doors to scaling operations and achieving even higher participation numbers and a lower administrative cost per energy unit saved."  

Powered on the Salesforce platform, the energyOrbit customer engagement solution is designed to provide an integrated user experience to streamline energy audits and free up administrator workloads, resulting in higher focus on articulating and executing program strategy. The system is routinely upgraded with the latest in energy efficiency and DSM standards and best practices to keep users ahead of the curve in DSM program management.

Five of the 15 largest investor-owned utilities in North America, as well as dozens of public utilities, cooperatives and third-party implementers, use energyOrbit to manage $1.6 billion in energy efficiency incentive dollars. In total, the award-winning platform has seen a 58 percent increase in the amount of total energy savings achieved on the platform to a total of 13.245 TWh (through January 2017); an amount equivalent to what two million solar-powered homes could generate in the Los Angeles Basin. Through the execution of energy efficiency programs through the energyOrbit platform, 6.8 million tons of CO2 emissions have been avoided since 2007, enough to fill 1,151 Empire State Buildings (for more view Infographic).
