Champion Energy Services, a Houston-based retail electric provider, says it has entered into an agreement with Lowfoot Inc., a provider of software-as-a-service (SaaS) for smart meter data and demand response, to bring the benefits of smart energy to residential customers.

Champion Energy will use Smart Meter Texas data and Lowfoot's SaaS system to show customers their energy usage patterns and a projection of their monthly electricity bill, as well as to analyze data from smart meters, aggregate it and help reduce peak energy consumption to mitigate wholesale energy price spikes.

"Making smart meter data available more timely reflects Champion Energy's unwavering commitment to helping customers manage their electricity consumption and energy costs," says David J. Tudor, president and CEO of Champion Energy. "Our new program, named PowerTrack, will provide valued customers with home energy consumption insights and enhance their customer experience."
