California energy supplier MCE chose PlanetEcosystems’ P-ECOSYS consumer engagement platform for its orientation around consumer needs, and its emphasis on strengthening relationships with the area’s 120,000 households.
The PlanetEcosystems energy efficiency tool will allow customers to maximize savings, reduce carbon footprints and make their homes more comfortable in a cost-effective way.
MCE will deploy many components of PlanetEcosystems’ consumer engagement platform, including three user-oriented web portals:
· Consumer engagement portal, including utility system optimization tools, rebate, financing and vendor management tools, social engagement and other facilities
· Vendor portal, with professional-level utility system optimization tools, project and other management tools
· Administrator portal, with program analysis, management and reporting tools
In addition, MCE has engaged PlanetEcosystems to provide several program activities, including school-based initiatives that use social and gamification techniques to engage students and their parents; direct messaging initiatives that use utility optimization and normative-comparative techniques to motivate consumer action; and several neighborhood-based energy-advisor initiatives.
PlanetEcosystems is a consumer engagement and demand reduction service provider, helping utilities and local governments achieve substantial reductions in residential and commercial energy and water demand.
MCE is a public, not-for-profit electricity provider that gives customers the choice of having 50 percent to 100 percent of their electricity supplied from clean, renewable sources such as solar, wind and biopower.
