Efficiency programs save enough energy to power households for a decade
Consumer households supported by Oracle Utilities Opower Energy Efficiency programs have reached more than 20-terawatt hours (TWh) in cumulative energy savings. This equates to enough energy to power San Francisco homes for 10 years, Spain for a month or three million Tesla Model 3s traversing the length of the equator.
The digital revolution has enabled consumers to better control everything from how they shop to how they ride to work. Until relatively recently, however, they lacked the ability to effectively manage their energy usage to lessen both their environmental footprint and monthly costs.
Opower first introduced its consumer Energy Ef- ficiency programs to the market in 2008. Just ten years later, the 20TWh milestone is a testament to how utilities and their customers have embraced these programs and transformed their behaviors to significantly reduce energy emissions.
“Opower revolutionised residential energy efficiency by empowering consumers at every economic level to manage their energy usage with no additional cost,” said Rodger Smith, senior vice president and general manager for Oracle Utilities. “We have given 15 million consumers access to actionable data that is enabling them to take charge of their energy consumption.”
