Verdeeco, a smart grid analytics firm, is implementing its Customer Portal Application at Iowa-based Maquoketa Valley Electric Cooperative (MVEC). Verdeeco says the application will be used to help improve communications with more than 15,000 members and expand consumer knowledge surrounding energy usage patterns.

According to Verdeeco, an annual survey of MVEC members conducted last year revealed that more than 60% of the respondents wished to be engaged with the utility about their energy consumption through an online or mobile platform.

Verdeeco says its Customer Portal Application will allow MVEC members to view daily energy usage over customizable time intervals; relate energy usage levels to external factors, including changes in temperature; compare usage levels over specific time periods and with similar users; and correlate energy usage levels to energy costs. Users of the application will also receive weekly notifications that provide monthly energy bill projections.
