C3 Announces Support for the Green Button Initiative to Empower Consumers With Information to Become Energy Efficient

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 7, 2012) - C3, a provider of enterprise-class energy management SaaS software solutions, today announced its support for the Green Button Initiative, a voluntary effort by utilities across the United States, to empower U.S. residences and businesses with secure access to their own energy usage data.

The C3 Energy products have adopted the Green Button data exchange standards to enable residential, commercial, and industrial energy users to better understand their energy utilization and significantly reduce their energy consumption.

C3's energy efficiency solutions help utilities to achieve energy efficiency targets through a unified customer engagement model. All customers -- residential, small/medium business, and large commercial and industrial organizations -- benefit from tailored insights and recommendations to reduce energy and save money.

C3 Residential is a customer engagement and energy efficiency portal that enables utilities to deliver energy efficiency solutions to their residential customers to generate verified and lasting savings. After profiling a household's use of energy and benchmarking that usage against similar homes, C3 Residential offers consumers tailored and individualized recommendations for energy savings actions and presents consumers the associated financial incentives to help fund those actions. Energy savings are tracked and reported to consumers along with continual feedback about additional ways to save energy and money. This ongoing cycle of customer engagement results in consistent and demonstrated energy savings up to 6%, along with significant increases in customer satisfaction.

"With support for Green Button, C3 Residential will accelerate the delivery of the information and tools consumers need to understand and manage their energy usage, lower their bills, and improve the environment," said Ed Abbo, President and CTO, C3.

"Energy efficiency offers a vast, low-cost energy resource for the U.S.," said Dr. Kristina Johnson, former Under Secretary at the U.S. Department of Energy. "C3's integrated software solution represents an important step forward in helping utilities realize the full potential of energy efficiency."
