Accurate Tariff Rates

Powerful Rate Engine


Comprehensive, accurate utility rate data

Industry Best Market Coverage

We capture all residential, commercial, industrial (C&I) and specialty tariff rate plans for any utility we cover. Our markets include USA, Canada and Mexico. This includes comprehensive regulated market tariffs and select data in deregulated markets.

Accurate & Detailed

We capture all the details. Every rate component, tariff eligibility rule and rate option. We support every rate structure we've found, from the simplest flat consumption rates, through tiered and time of use pricing, to system and dynamic peaks, complex ratchets and sophisticated billing rules. We have utility service areas and baseline regions, holiday schedules and more.

Always Up-to-date

We track all rate changes and typically QA and publish them in less than 1 business day. That's over 15,000 tariff book updates every month, and growing. We also maintain current electricity market and hourly retail pricing.


World's most powerful rate engine

Our calculation engine takes your electricity usage and returns detailed costs and savings. It's the product of nine years of software development, and is field proven through millions of calculations each day. The only rate engine built from the ground up with the flexibility needed for New Energy and the accuracy demanded by customers.

Blazingly fast. Real time. Internet scale.

Speed and scalability are embedded in the core of all of our calculators, including ones that compute historical and month-to-date bills, compare tariff rate plans, forecast solar and efficiency savings, and signal real-time load and battery optimization. It's flexible, returning results with the cost and time interval granularity you require. All available via our APIs.


Flexible usage data tools

Our products work with whatever usage data you have. Hourly or 15 minute AMI readings, sub-meters, a single utility bill's components, or an annual estimate: we inteligently take whatever your input and generate costs and savings for it.

If you have little or no actual usage data or would like to compare with similar homes and businesses, our typical usage can help. It's a large database of hourly usage, cost and rate data spanning the entire USA.
