ComEd Receives OK To Provide Energy Usage Data To Product/Service Developers
ComEd announced that the Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC) has given the green light to a proposal by ComEd that allows companies and researchers access to anonymous energy usage data which ComEd said would, "enable the development of new products and services that will add value to Illinois energy consumers."
ComEd said the data, has, "the potential to spur new offerings from smart home and appliance manufacturers, HVAC and lighting companies, market researchers and energy management specialists."
ComEd said that the anonymous usage data is a compilation of energy usage statistics that do not include any customers' personal identification.
The new program will open access to unidentified interval energy usage data for all zip codes where smart meters have been deployed.
ComEd has installed 3 million smart meters in northern Illinois since deployment began in 2013 and it will complete the installation of 4 million smart meters in 2018.
