Access to Billing Data
“My organization’s biggest challenge in energy management is the lack of timely access to our utility billing data.”
Few bills are as complicated to measure and monitor as utility bills. Most organizations simply pay the bill, tally the cost, and file the paper. In doing so, they overlook between 5 and 20 different pieces of data that are clues to reducing their utility costs.
In 2015-16, 360 Energy convened the Utility Billing Data Access Working Group (UBDAWG). This group engaged energy customers, utilities, energy market analysts, and billing data processing stakeholders. They collaborated to propose and review ways that energy and water ratepayers can get faster and easier access to their billing data.
