The site stores daily, monthly and 15-minute interval electric usage data recorded by digital electric meters (commonly known as “smart meters”), and provides secure access to that data to customers and authorized market participants (including through the use of a “Green Button”).
In addition to acting as an interface for access to smart meter data, SMT enables secure communications with customer in-home devices, and provides a convenient, easy-to-use process whereby customers can voluntarily authorize market participants other than the customer’s Retail Electric Provider (Third Parties) access to their electric usage information and in-home devices.
By providing timely access to electric usage data and secure communication with in-home devices, SMT enables customers to better manage their energy consumption to lower their monthly electric bills, and benefit from new products and services offered by Retail Electric Providers and Third Parties.
