Expanding Green Button Offerings

This is truly an exciting time for the energy industry and their customers as more and more utilities are looking into providing access to energy-consumption data in the standardized Green Button format. In addition, the energy service providers that are already offering Green Button Data are now looking to extend the standard's broad functionality beyond their initial Green Button platforms and are conceiving of—and implementingnew and interesting products and services to address customer needs and regulatory requirements. 

To hear how these innovative utilities are leveraging Green Button, we invite you to view the Green Button Alliance's webinar, "Utilities Educating on Green Button," recorded on 28 June 2017. 
Vendors and third-party Green Button Data application developers are also rapidly bringing outstanding new products and services to market that utilize standardized energy-consumption data and take advantage of the security and flexibility the Green Button standard was designed to ensure. We're impressed and inspired by the remarkable solutions our members are bringing to market. Read about new solutions from Personal BlackBox, London Hydro, Solar Analytics, Energy Toolbase, and ComEd, in our June Newsletter.

Member Spotlight: Solar Analytics

In the June issue, we feature Solar Analytics in our "Member Spotlight." Founded by top solar industry experts, Solar Analytics is a revolutionary solar-monitoring company that provides intelligent monitoring for residential and commercial solar energy systems. Read about their new "My Solar App" and other offerings.

Lastly, we encourage our members—utilities, vendors, and affiliate organizations—to attend our Green Button Global Marketing Committee call on Wednesday, 02 August.  For anyone bringing apps utilizing Green Button data to market, it'll be a meeting of interest!

Member Spotlight

Solar Analytics

With 14,000 sales, headquarters in Sydney, Australia and a US office in the Powerhouse incubator in Oakland, California, Solar Analytics is making serious inroads into helping householders and small businesses to connect with their solar and electricity.

With the majority of households experiencing high levels of stress around electricity bills, Solar Analytics uses solar and energy monitoring software to help people reduce their bills and keep their solar systems working to capacity. Solar Analytics does this by monitoring electricity consumption and overlaying that data with solar generation, solar exported and solar used in their home. Customers can access this data with an easy-to-understand interface on any device, anywhere.

The team's data scientists identify performance issues using their patented algorithms and local weather data to alert users about solar system problems as they start to occur.

This month Solar Analytics launched their iOS My Solar App in the Apple Store, providing a native app experience for their users, making it even easier to stay connected with their solar and energy.

Solar Analytics monitoring is also a key tool for the solar sales channel; solar retailers can provide their customers with confidence in their system quotation, and then ongoing system performance. They can keep an eye on their fleet and use real data to accurately quote for batteries and additional solar requirements. The software enables a long-term relationship between the solar retailer and customer, and customer and their solar.

"We're extremely pleased to be able to utilise Green Button Data as part of our analysis of residential and commercial electricity generation and consumption; this data forms an important part of our key value proposition to help customers to reduce their electricity bills and make the most of their home energy."
– Stefan Jarnason, CEO, Solar Analytics.

As Solar Analytics dives more deeply into the Smart Home Energy space with solar diversion to hot water systems, community solar and battery control, Green Button Data will be even more crucial to reach the wider marketplace.  Connect with Solar Analytics on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Instagram.
