San Francisco, Calif. September 26, 2018 — energyOrbit and Delaware Sustainable Energy Utility (DESEU), have released results from their first-ever statewide tracking system for managing and reporting its energy efficiency and renewable initiatives. The ability to operate a singular, cloud-enabled management tool gave DESEU program administrators from Delaware Sustainable Energy Utility and Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) the confidence to expand existing energy efficiency and renewable energy programs and to launch new programs. Most notably, their Home Performance with Energy Star program resulted in an increase of $2.4M in incentives and $10.34M in lifetime energy savings.
"Our partnership with energyOrbit saved us from the struggles of old and complex Excel spreadsheets, and allowed us to tap into the power of the commonly understood and respected platform powered on Salesforce," said Tony DePrima, Executive Director of DESEU. "We hope that in time, this robust system will be adopted by all of the energy efficiency program administrators in the State of Delaware."
By utilizing the energyOrbit platform, DESEU is able to capture and organize data from various energy efficiency programs for simplified sharing, and collaboration. energyOrbit also allows Energize Delaware program implementers to manage and submit performance data through a simple to use, web-based interface.
