Puget Sound Energy, a US utility, has launched the My PSE Account, a customer dashboard, on its web site, providing bill payment and analysis capabilities that help customers manage their energy costs. My PSE Account provides personalised benchmarks of costs compared to similar homes, causes of bill changes, hourly use analysis, the savings of potential rate options, examination of the costs of appliances and how much can be saved by managing how the appliances are used.
Nexus Energy Software was chosen to provide its ENERGYprism® web-based energy bill analysis software system as the basis for the customer dashboard. The system is also supporting PSE’s customer service phone centre representatives with similar tools to help them respond to high bill enquiries. ENERGYprism’s bill analysis is based on advanced models that use bill history and interval meter data, as well as weather information and information provided by the customer.
