UTILITY INSIGHTS

The Aclara ACE platform provides utilities and their customers data-driven tools that enable customers with personalized and actionable solutions that heighten energy cost awareness and promote energy and water efficiency.

The program also allows customers to review a current bill summary with usages broken down by electric, water and sewer, view a projection of their next bill, and look at past bills in the bill history.  Energy or water usage can be compared with temperature data to see how usage changes daily or during the winter and summer months.
