You could be one of the first to try the city’s new energy management system that works with your smart meter.
Fifty residential and 10 commercial electric utility customers will be chosen from a lottery to test out a new interface through Canadian firm, Lowfoot.
To be entered in the lottery, residents can sign up on the city’s website until June 23 at 8 a.m. Those selected will be notified by the end of June.
The goal is to find out if the new ePortal, being provided at no cost to the city, is customer friendly.
“We want residents to look at it and give us some feedback [about] what they see on there, if it’s helping them track their energy usage, and if they can change their habits based on what they see,” said Naperville’s Communications Manager, Linda LaCloche.
Trial participants will include those selected in the lottery, some city council members, and residents who are smart grid ambassadors. They will give their feedback, which will then be put in a recommendation to the entire council.
The city originally contracted with Calico to provide an ePortal system, the city sued that company for breach of contract earlier this year.
