Opower has partnered with New Zealand-based energy retailer Mercury Energy to bring Opower's customer engagement platform to Mercury's 300,000 customers.

Customers will have access to Mercury's Good Energy Monitor (GEM) through several communications channels, including a secure web portal. A main feature of the portal is a similar-homes comparison that provides homeowners with context on how their energy consumption compares to their neighbors'. Customers will also receive personalized tips on how to reduce energy consumption and save money.

"By giving customers unparalleled visibility into when they are using electricity, GEM enables them to be more in control of their energy usage and gives them information needed to help reduce their bills," says James Munro, Mercury Energy's general manager.
