In an effort to automate and streamline their  energy efficiency programs among their 500,000 customers, Public Service Company of New Mexico (PNM), New Mexico's largest energy provider, has tapped the Demand Side Management (DSM) platform from energyOrbit to implement a unified method for reporting its energy efficiency activities. PNM can utilize the energyOrbit DSM operations platform to streamline and report energy efficiency and rebate programs offered to its customers.

New Mexico utility, known as PNM, leverages the energyOrbit cloud-based operational platform to streamline management of energy efficiency and rebate programs for 500,000 customers

"One of our core missions is to ensure our clients can move away from non-collaborative, static business solutions and realize significant productivity gains by switching to a collaborative, customer engagement enhancing  solution," says Udi Merhav, CEO of energyOrbit. "We are certain that by adopting the energyOrbit solution, PNM will be able to more efficiently run its DSM operations as well as have more touchpoints to engage and provide value to its members."

By leveraging the energyOrbit platform, PNM will be able to make informed decisions which allow for more effective management of their projects. The platform allows seamless access to multiple parties or outside sources to submit their information electronically, all in one place.

Setup and configuration of the energyOrbit platform can be accomplished quickly and easily suits both small and large energy efficiency programs. It can also be scaled up to service substantial program growth and expansion. The cloud-based platform helps to increase worker productivity for IT teams and can empower DSM program managers with the proper tools and information to carry out their objectives.

By engaging with energyOrbit, similar utilities have achieved improved efficiency and DSM operational savings by up to 75 percent. Powered on the Salesforce platform, the energyOrbit customer engagement solution is designed to provide an integrated user experience to streamline energy audits and free up administrator workloads, resulting in greater administrative focus on program strategy and implementation. The system is routinely upgraded with the latest in energy efficiency and DSM standards and best practices to keep users ahead of the curve in DSM program management.

In the last 18 months, energyOrbit reports it has aided five of the 15 largest investor-owned utilities in North America, as well as public utilities & cooperatives and third-party implementers in collectively reducing 5.617 GW of peak demand through its automated customer engagement and operational management cloud software platform (infographic). The award-winning platform has also seen a 58 percent increase in the amount of total energy savings achieved on the platform in the past 18 months to a total of 13.245 TWh; an amount equivalent to what two million solar powered homes could generate in the Los Angeles Basin. Through the execution of energy efficiency programs through the energyOrbit platform, 6.8 million tons of CO2 emissions have been avoided since 2007, enough to fill 1,151 Empire State Buildings (for more information, view Infographic).

PNM is the largest utility provider in New Mexico. It serves more than 500,000 residential and business customers in the Albuquerque Metro area, as well as Santa Fe, Las Vegas, Silver City, Deming, Ruidoso, Lordsburg, Deming, Alamogordo and in eight tribal communities around the state.
