Opower and Utility Partners Save Over Eight Terawatt-hours of Energy

Scaled Platform Drives $1 Billion in Bill Savings for Utility Customers

Opower’s technology platform has saved over eight TWh of energy across nearly 100 utility deployments worldwide.

“This milestone is a tribute to the incredible work of our utility partners,” said Dan Yates, Opower CEO. “Saving eight terawatt-hours is proof of the kind of results that scaled technology and personalized energy insight can deliver for utilities, customers and the environment.”

Opower has continued to invest in its technology platform to drive greater outcomes at scale for utilities and their customers. Saving eight TWh’s is equivalent to:

  • Over $1 billion in bill savings for utility customers;
  • Taking more than 1.1 million cars off the road for a year; and
  • The energy needed to power all the homes in New Mexico or Rome for a year.

Some of Opower's largest energy saving programs include Pacific Gas & Electric, ComEd and National Grid Massachusetts. In the last twelve months alone, Opower and its partners have saved three TWh’s of energy - more than twice as much energy as America's largest residential solar company produced over the same time period.

Opower’s utility programs have been deployed by more than 95 utilities worldwide and reach more than 50 million homes and businesses. Opower provides the industry’s leading customer engagement platform, designed specifically to support utility demand-side management and customer care initiatives. Opower’s software delivers a range of benefits for utilities, including cost-effective energy efficiency savings, daily and seasonal peak reductions, increased customer satisfaction and engagement, and lower cost-to-serve.
