Opower (NYSE: OPWR), the global leader in cloud-based software for the utility industry, today announced that it has achieved a major milestone: Opower's technology platform has saved over eight terawatt-hours (TWh) of energy across nearly 100 utility deployments worldwide. "This milestone is a tribute to the incredible work of our utility partners," said Dan Yates, Opower CEO. "Saving eight terawatt-hours is proof of the kind of results that scaled technology and personalized energy insight can deliver for utilities, customers and the environment." Opower has continued to invest in its technology platform to drive greater outcomes at scale for utilities and their customers. Saving eight TWh's is equivalent to:
- Over $1 billion in bill savings for utility customers;
- Taking more than 1.1 million cars off the road for a year; and
- The energy needed to power all the homes in New Mexico or Rome for a year.
