Opower, a provider of customer engagement solutions for the utility industry, says it is working with National Grid in Rhode Island to deliver its Home Energy Report program to the utility's 425,000 residential customers.

Based on behavioral science and data analytics, the program will give all customers the tips and insight they need to see how their energy usage stacks up against their neighbors and find new ways to save on their energy bills. National Grid is the first utility to provide the program statewide.

The Home Energy Report and associated web portal include a comparison against a group of similarly sized and equipped homes in the area, usage history comparisons, goal-setting tools and progress trackers. Customers can view the past 12 months of their energy usage.
