SDG&E and Candi Controls launch PowerTools app

Oct 03, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) -- San Diego Gas & Electric, or SDG&E, and Candi Controls have announced the rollout of the Green Button Connect My Data platform with the launch of their first app, PowerTools.

The new PowerTools app, enabled by SDG&E and created by Candi Controls, will be available in October 2012 for SDG&E customers to view their personalized energy use information and use tools to find new ways to save energy. PowerTools will help SDG&E customers to securely identify ways to make smarter choices in their energy use habits and decisions, improve efficiency and lower costs, SDG&E said.

Initially available for web browsers and mobile tablets, the app will soon also be available for additional platforms including mobile phones and third-party platforms such as Facebook.

According to the company, the app's features include: historical usage analysis, overview of actual use and savings relative to history, phantom power load calculation, environmental impact, ability to choose and track energy saving goals, utility bill payment, current and historic local weather related to energy usage, and social network goal- and success-sharing functionality.


"Instead of waiting to get a bill at the end of the month, Green Button Connect My Data and the new PowerTools app empower customers to be more in tune with the way they consume energy and find new ways to conserve," said SDG&E President and COO Mike Niggli. "This type of innovation would not be possible without smart meters that provide real-time energy information that allows SDG&E customers to save money and conserve energy." "We're excited to be working with SDG&E to help customers benefit from smart grid technology," said Steve Raschke, CEO of Candi Controls. "By bringing energy data and advice to customers' mobile devices, PowerTools can help people identify and measure actions that result in meaningful cost savings and a healthier environment." http://www.datamonitor.com Republication or redistribution, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited without prior written consent.
