Community Conservation ProgramEmpowering consumers to manage and save energy
What is CCP?Util-Assist is changing the way consumers view electricity. Util-Assist’s Community Conservation Program (CCP) uses smart meter data to show consumers how much energy they have consumed as of the prior day. That way, consumers are equipped to make near-immediate decisions on how to save energy. Customized alerts notify a consumer when a given threshold is reached, providing even more instant data to change course. CCP features like social benchmarking and creative incentives provide further motivation.
