ENMAX Energy Selects Opower to Improve & Expand Customer Engagement

Customers will receive NextWeb portal, Home Energy Reports, and more

Opower (NYSE: OPWR), the global leader in cloud-based software for the utility industry, announced today that it has been selected by ENMAX Energy, an energy retailer headquartered in Calgary, Alberta, to improve and enhance the customer experience with Opower’s Energy Efficiency, Digital Engagement and Bill Advisor products.

As part of ENMAX’s My Energy IQ™ program, Opower will deliver Home Energy Reports and its NextWeb online portal to customers, equipping them with more control over their energy usage and insights that make it easy to save money and energy on their monthly bills. The program will be powered by Opower’s analytics engine, which has processed over 500 billion meter reads to date — more residential energy data than any other company on earth.

“We want our customer experience to live up to the highest standards of today’s modern, digital world,” said Gianna Manes, President and CEO of ENMAX. “My Energy IQ™, powered by Opower, will give our ENMAX Energy customers unprecedented control over their energy use through a streamlined set of easily-accessible digital tools and resources.”

The My Energy IQ™ program can provide customers with a breakdown of their energy use by appliance category, personalized advice about how to reduce their energy bill, as well as for eligible customers, a comparative analysis that ranks their efficiency compared to similar nearby homes.

“ENMAX is an important client for Opower,” said Opower President and Co-Founder Alex Laskey. “Not only because they are a major partner in Canada, but also because this partnership demonstrates the value our customer engagement platform brings to utilities in competitive markets — in Canada and around the world.”
