Nevada-based WREA released a platform for energy data monitoring, analysis and advanced diagnostics using Pacific Gas and Electric’s ShareMyData platform, granting access to more than 20 million Californians. Customers can obtain basic access, through WREA, for viewing their energy data for up to a week’s duration for free. Longer durations will need paid licenses.
Using PG&E’s ShareMyData platform, WREA’s service accesses energy data given in 15-minute segments.
Additionally, WREA Time supports PG&Es’ StreamMyData platform and other utilities’ platforms supporting the Zigbee standard for monitoring, analysis and management of energy, devices and facilities.
PG&E developed its Share My Data platform in response to a challenge by the White House to utility companies to provide customers with their energy usage information in an easy-to-use format. This initiative, also known as Green Button, makes customers’ detailed energy usage information available in a standardized file format, and is intended to empower customers by raising awareness of their energy usage.
