Consumers Energy uses Aclara software in home energy analyzer

Wellesley, Mass., October 21, 2009 — Consumers Energy is using Aclara’s web-based Energyprism software in its recently launched home energy analyzer application.

Customers of Consumers Energy who log into the graphics-rich environment of Home Energy Analyzer provide information about the size of their homes, the number of people in their households and the appliances they use.

They then are presented with average costs for each appliance and can see how their usage compares with that of other customers.

In addition, customers’ total power and gas usage are displayed in pie charts, allowing them to quickly determine how much they are spending for heating, air conditioning, lighting, and other uses.

Consumers Energy, the principal unit of CMS Energy, provides electric and natural gas service to nearly 6.5 million of Michigan’s 10 million residents, in all 68 counties of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula.
