Opower, National Grid launch energy efficiency program in Rhode Island

Opower is working with National Grid Rhode Island to deliver the Home Energy Report program to all 425,000 of its residential customers. Based on behavioral science and data analytics, the program will give all customers the tips and insights they need to see how their energy usage stacks up against their neighbors and find new ways to save on their energy bills. National Grid is the first utility to provide the program statewide, according to Opower.

Developed by Opower, the Home Energy Report program combines behavioral science with data analytics to provide customers with detailed information and insights on their household energy usage.

The reports and web portal include a comparison against a group of similarly sized and equipped homes in the area, usage history comparisons, goal setting tools, and progress trackers. To date, Opower has helped its utility partners save over $280 million on utility bills.

The Home Energy Report program anonymously compares customers’ energy use with that of their neighbors of similar home size and demographics. Customers can view the past twelve months of their energy usage and compare and contrast their energy consumption and costs with others in the same neighborhood.
