Software solutions provider Tendril has released an update on utility Tucson Electric Power's Power Partners pilot project, which began in August 2012 and is due for completion in November.

The pilot program utilizes a branded version of Tendril's Energize application to enable consumers to manage their electricity use by giving access to consumption data. According to Tendril, 94% of participants say they have found high value in tracking and monitoring their energy use throughout the duration of the program.

In addition, the company notes that 77% of participants took some action to reduce energy use based on the recommendations of its Energize application. For example, 53% of users have made low-cost investments, such as replacing light bulbs or having their air conditioning unit serviced.
