Energy Monitoring Customer Portals

Several Companies offer customers access to their energy usage data. Customers can access this data, if
- their utility provider has partnered with energy analytics software vendor
- their utility has developed their own inhouse energy monitoring solution
- customers purchase an energy monitoring device which sends data to a energy analytics provider bypassing their utility provider
