Energy Rebate Mobile App for Consumers

If you haven’t already, it’s time to start thinking about energy efficiency rebates. Your customers are planning on spending a portion of their tax refunds on home improvements. Some of that money will go to making their homes stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter more efficiently. After this year’s winter, homeowners are starting to see what their outdated HVAC and older doors and windows are costing them. Since consumers are looking to make these upgrades anyway, you should take advantage and offer energy rebates.

DSM Mobile RebatesGreen Team Energy Services has a low-cost solution that enable utilities to offer rebates easier without the headaches of manually processing each order. That solution is DSM Mobile Rebates. It is a seamless, electronic energy efficiency rebates processing channel built on cloud technology. DSM Mobile Rebates eliminates paper rebates which saves utilities manpower, time, and money, while improving program cost-effectiveness. When DSM Mobile Rebates is implemented into energy efficiency programs, utilities receive not only the mobile app but also Green Team Energy Services’ powerful DSMTracker rebates processing module on the backend. This rebates engine can also be enabled to work with all other rebate application channels, along with mobile rebates to drive cost out of the rebates process. As a result the utility saves money, while providing their customers with a way to save money too.

DSM Mobile Rebates is a mobile app consumers can download to their Android or iPhone. It’s easy to use for them. All they have to do is take a picture of their receipt, answer some pertinent questions, and apply for the rebate. Because the program is already setup, the system processes the rebate without your team even having to touch it. It’s a win-win for consumers and utilities.

Energy Rebate Aftermath of a Bitter Cold South

DSMTracker helps utilties with rebate processing While many of us were at AESP in San Diego enjoying the balmy weather, our counterparts were bracing for Winter Storm Leon. And now, the South is getting hit with a catastrophic ice storm.  Unlike the north, the southeast was not prepared for the snow, or the ice that came with it. People living in a region that is not used to being so cold found themselves freezing and cranking up their thermostats.

The implications for utilities is an increase in demand.  Households in the south are not used to the cold Mother Nature has been dishing out.  Once consumers see their utility bill, they may start looking for ways to save money since their usage increased these past few weeks of bitter cold weather. In turn, they may look to their utility to see what rebates are offered to assist with upgrades they may be considering.

This turn of events bodes well for many utility programs, but comes with a negative consequence; rebate processing costs. Each rebate application that comes in has to be processed, which is costly for utilities due to the staff needed to review and manually enter the applications, whether processed by a third party or not. It’s a slow, tedious, and time consuming process that not only adds significant cost to the rebates process, but also delays payments to customers. Utilities need a solution that reduces cost, is easy to manage, and processes rebates seamlessly.

That solution is DSM Mobile Rebates, a low-cost, seamless, electronic energy efficiency rebates processing channel built on cloud technology. DSM Mobile Rebates eliminates paper rebates which saves utilities manpower, time, and money, while improving program cost-effectiveness. When DSM Mobile Rebates is implemented into energy efficiency programs, utilities receive not only the mobile app but also Green Team Energy Services’ powerful DSMTracker rebates processing module on the backend. This  rebates engine can also be enabled to work with all other rebate application channels, along with mobile rebates to drive cost out of the rebates process. As a result the utility saves money, while providing their customers with a way to save money too. Thus, the next time Mother Nature decides she wants to send a polar vortex to the South, they’ll be prepared.

Increasing 39% Energy Efficiency

All the crazy weather lately has had consumers and utilities a stir. Freezing temperatures due to the polar vortex left many without power and others worrying about their electricity bill. The polar vortex did not help utilities curb demand. These strange weather patterns, along with the fact that 2013 was 7th hottest year since the 19th century (when weather tracking began) has many utilities looking for better DSM solutions.

Opower reports that utilities allocate $8.3 billion to DSM initiatives. It’s a balancing act of ensuring your utility is profitable while remaining compliant with commission demands of reducing consumption. The US is only operating at 39% energy efficiency. DSM initiatives should ideally improve that number.

Utilities’ starting point should be data. You have systems that measure customer consumption and DSM programs that are designed to reduce that consumption, but do you have a single system that can consolidate that data in ways that make it easy to track, manage, analyze, and report? A good way for utilities to use  a portion of the $8.3 billion is to invest in a solution that manages consumption and DSM data.

DSM program capabilities

DSMTracker manages and tracks all your data in a way that makes it easy to extract for analysis and reports so you can better assess how customers are using, or saving, energy. DSMTracker also gives you the capability to implement energy efficiency and demand response programs with modules designed for delivery.

That same technology is mobile with DSM Mobile Rebates. Your customers can apply for energy rebates via their smartphone. Once their information is verified (within the platform), processing is automated; thus, driving significant cost out of the rebate process..

39% energy efficiency is not acceptable. One way utilities can contribute to the increase of that number, and be part of using the $8.3 billion in DSM initiatives, is to invest wisely in a platform that is essentially energy efficiency in a box for program managers.
