Energy Estimator- Powered by HELIX and ClearlyEnergy

Energy Estimator—powered by HELIX and ClearlyEnergy— is a user-friendly interface that leverages tax assessor data to generate a breakdown of a home’s annual energy costs. This no cost tool is available for energy professionals and homeowners to work together to refine estimates with utility bill data and information about in-home assets via a virtual audit.

With information gathered through the audit, the contractor can generate a home energy report and specific savings estimates for energy improvement projects to share with the homeowner.

With lower costs compared to traditional on-site audits, contractors can work with a greater number of homes, creating a larger pipeline of projects.

  • Streamline data collection with a guided audit of energy assets throughout the building including lighting, controls, building envelope, HVAC, natural gas, and water measures
  • Analyze potential savings of prescribed Energy Conservation Measures even while offline with no Internet connection
  • Provide real-time proposals that incorporate material costs, labor costs, margins, and incentives
  • Seamlessly create work orders, inspection audits, and certificates of installation

MyHEAT HEAT Loss Platform

MyHEAT uses a turbo prop aircraft affixed with a speacilized sensor to capture thermal images of entire cities.  The resulting data is merged with GIS (Geographic Information System) data sets and our patented algorithms to produce roof-top HEAT Maps and HEAT Ratings for each residential building in a city.

MyHEAT's detailed thermal images reveal the waste heat/energy escaping from each building.  Our SaaS (Software as a Service) platform is used by various North American natural gas and electric utilities, as well as government-lead energy efficiency program operators to engage homeowners and encourage participation in efficiency rebate programs.

Opower Home Energy Analysis

The Opower Home Energy Analysis (HEA) is a configurable online audit tool that utility customers can complete to receive a personalized disaggregation of their energy usage as well as energy saving tips and recommendations. The HEA data is used to provide customers with a better understanding of how they use energy.

The HEA incorporates behavioral design principles throughout to efficiently guide customers through the survey questions, resulting in average completion rates of 80%. Prior to customers starting the audit, the HEA displays information about the survey, including what the customer can expect to receive after completing.

After the customer finishes the survey, the HEA displays a breakdown of their energy use and costs by bill period or in an annual summary. Customers can select each individual energy end-use category to see what percentage of their home’s energy use it comprises, category-specific tips, and a list of what contributes to energy use for the category.

For utilities, the HEA is invaluable for gathering data about customer usage and home systems, which can then be used to promote relevant programs and build a pipeline for future retrofits.
