The PowerBill API includes all of the proven functionality of the Clean Power Estimator API, while incorporating increased programming modularity and new features for a wide range of energy technologies and scenarios.

The RESTful PowerBill API makes it easy for energy providers to sell combined technologies that save their customers money. The modular structure of the API provides the flexibility to identify and optimize for a variety of energy solutions, such as the lease of solar PV combined with an electric vehicle loan, or solar PV combined with an electric vehicle and a programmable thermostat.

The PowerBill API also introduces built-in routines designed specifically for Home Energy Management Systems. The routines translate energy consumption into dollars, and inform intelligent real-time and future operation of home appliances.

Access all of the functionality available in the Clean Power Estimator API, plus:

    • Quickly and easily identify the most cost-effective tariff, personalized for a specific home or business owner.
    • Communicate utility bill savings to your existing PV customers on an on-going basis by comparing what they’re paying today to what their electric bill would have been without solar.
    • Obtain smart energy signaling to drive the intelligent and cost-effective use of home appliances.
    • Model various energy producing and consuming technologies, including solar PV, solar thermal, electric vehicles and energy efficiency. Combine two or more of these technologies to understand the net economic, energy and environmental impacts.
