Energy Efficiency Programs
NCPA and seven of our members selected energyOrbit to provide a strategic, shared platform for managing our conservation programs. The group deployment has been very cost effective - allowing even our smallest members to benefit from this "best-in-class" solution, making it easier for members to evaluate their programs, share best practices, and simplify their regulatory reporting processes.

We needed to move to a single, strategic platform to securely and efficiently manage energy efficiency programs for many of our utility clients. Having built and used a variety of tracking systems, we knew how hard it was to get this right. We have been impressed with the power and flexibility of the solution and the Salesforce platform.

The energyOrbit solution has vastly simplified the administration of our EE programs. With configurable workflows and reports, using fewer paper products and the reduction of rebate application processing time and effort, we are expecting to recoup our investment in this system in the first year.

The energyOrbit development team have been partners in the truest sense-innovative, reliable and committed to our success.
Commonwealth Edison (ComEd) manages a portfolio of commercial and industrial energy efficiency incentive programs known as Smart Ideas for Your Business. In 2010, ComEd began to focus on segment-based strategies and coordinated, multi-party outreach to increase program participation among business customers.
Download our case study to learn how ComEd deployed the energyOrbit solution within three weeks of contract signature, enabling ComEd to:
Project Description: A large public utility with about 165,000 retail customers in South Carolina, Santee sought a single solution that would help them consolidate all of the EE programs onto a single database and provide account management capabilities. SC decided to take a multi-phased implementation approach due to the disparate nature of current systems and impact of the change across their organization. energyOrbit’s engagement began in August 2010 and was complete by April 2011.
Project Description: Waverly Light & Power is a small municipal electric utility in Iowa, serving more than 4,600 customers, known as a leader in EE, completing more than 1,000 projects a year. In 2011, WLP decided to look for automation solutions that would help them streamline administration, optimize efficiencies and scale for future growth. energyOrbit was selected in October 2011 and needed the platform functional by January 1, 2012. Over the next few months, the energyOrbit team worked closely with WLP to define an aggressive implementation that maximized all available resources. Within a matter of weeks, the team had the bulk of the platform configured, leaving ample time for testing and training prior to the launch. Full system implementation was completed by January 1, 2012. Since implementation, WLP has reduced average rebate application entry time by more than 30%.
Project Description: Dairyland Power Cooperative is an electric generation and transmission utility providing electricity to the approximately 600,000 members of 25 electric cooperatives in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa and Illinois. In January 2011, energyOrbit began working with the DPC team to implement a shared EE tracking solution that allows for program administration and customization across all 25 cooperatives, while segmenting and protecting individual utility data. Work was fully completed by July 2011. DPC estimates a two-year ROI, with savings in man hours alone covering product and implementation cost.
Project Description: NCPA (Northern California Power Agency) is a joint power agency providing power and aggregated services to member public utilities in northern California. In 2013, energyOrbit worked with NCPA to understand the collective requirements of 7 member utilities and deployed a solution that is optimized to support the group of related but independent organizations. Empowered with energyOrbit, NCPA provides program support to members and access to data needed for annual state reports. Each participating member has a secured program tracking solution environment customized to specific requirements as well as the ability to accept online applications through branded rebate portal. By leveraging common elements across the group and sharing costs, each member was able to acquire an enterprise DSM tracking solution for far less than had they purchased a solution individually.
