    We started Opower because our natural environment is being destroyed by rampant consumption of the planet’s finite energy resources. This isn’t happening in the distant future—this is happening today. And yesterday. And last week.

    We didn’t want to sit on our hands waiting for the solar, wind, electric car, et al. industries to ramp up to the point where they could really have an impact. So we came up with a way to slow down energy consumption right now—for everyone around the world, and in a way that anyone can use and understand. The more people we put Opower in the hands of, the less energy the Earth will use.

    Opower's technology is transforming the way utilities relate to their customers. By combining data management, insightful analytics, and behavioral science, Opower's customer engagement platform positions utilities as trusted energy advisors to the customers they serve.

    Founded in 2007 and publicly traded on the NYSE under the stock ticker OPWR, Opower has been named a Bloomberg New Energy Finance Pioneer, EURELECTRIC’s Company of the Year, and among the 20 fastest growing tech companies in North America. Today, Opower's client base includes more than 95 utilities in more than 9 countries, helping engage more than 50 million homes and businesses.

    Opower's technology platform analyzes more than 300 billion meter reads to deliver its services, and has created enough energy savings through behavior change to power all the homes in a city of 1 million people for a year.
