Wisconsin Businesses Now Have Access to Software for Optimizing Energy Usage

August 6, 2012
CHICAGO — Agentis Energy announced that Wisconsin’s We Energies is providing its commercial and industrial customers with access to Agentis’ energy efficiency software. The company said that 15,000 Wisconsin businesses now have access to the Agentis Platform, marketed by We Energies as Account Monitor, state-of-the-art software that gives businesses analytics and insight to help increase their energy efficiency.

“We are thrilled to have partnered with We Energies to help their business customers manage energy usage,” Tim Stojka, CEO of Agentis Energy said. “We Energies understands that their business customers want and need innovative tools to help them use energy more efficiently. The Agentis Platform gives these customers easy-to-use tools to help them reach their energy goals, while providing the utility with deeper customer insights and a new vehicle to improve customer satisfaction.”

“Account Monitor is another important tool that we can share with customers to help them manage their energy service,” said Joan Shafer, senior vice president of Customer Services at We Energies. “The more information we can provide to our business customers, the better it is for them to make energy decisions that can positively impact their bottom line.”

“As an energy efficiency program implementer, energy is our business. Account Monitor allows us to see our usage patterns and manage our account,” said Paul Van Engen, small business and education and awareness program manager at Franklin Energy. “We also use this valuable tool to show customers their electrical usage patterns so we can help them develop plans to use energy more efficiently.” Franklin Energy administers the Energy Incentives program for We Energies.

The Agentis Platform gives companies detailed data about their energy usage and pinpoints opportunities for savings derived from analytics, said the company. By identifying trends and opportunities, businesses are able to adjust their energy usage accordingly, opening the door for significant cost savings. The software also gives customers the ability to run simulations and understand the savings potential available through associated changes.

Joining an existing 3,000 customers that were given access last September during a successful pilot project, 12,000 additional We Energies commercial and industrial customers can now use the Account Monitor. Newly-eligible businesses include those customers who generally use more than 10,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity per month.
