Sustaio delivers accurate energy consumption information to customers with automated utility data
Sustaio is on a mission to empower people through financial rewards to live climate smarter in their homes. By utilizing data, behavioral science, and software, Sustaio provides real-time tracking and information for the everyday individual to reduce their footprint.
Connect energy and water consumption data to help Sustaio’s customers manage their carbon footprint.
Sustaio needed a reliable source of automated energy data to provide their users with visibility into their energy consumption, but it was too difficult and time-consuming to collect and standardize this data from multiple sources. Plus, users’ self-reported energy data was unreliable.
Sustaio leverages Arc to allow their users to connect their utility accounts so that Sustaio can automatically track necessary energy and water consumption data. Sustaio then helps users reduce their carbon footprint through options available in their marketplace.
By leveraging Arc, Sustaio is able to support users at scale with the data needed to measure and track their energy and water consumption. This allows their team to spend less time collecting data and more time focused on options to reduce users’ impact and reward their users for carbon-conscious decisions.
Arcadia seems like the most modern approach. We looked at competitors, and their APIs were not clean and just seemed like a nightmare to integrate with. Arcadia seems to have the most modern product available.
Sustaio is working to empower individuals with financial incentives to make environmentally responsible choices in their daily lives. By harnessing data, behavioral science, and advanced software solutions, Sustaio provides real-time tracking and information, equipping individuals with the tools to proactively reduce their carbon footprint.
Recognizing a need for reliable energy consumption data, Sustaio faced the challenge of collecting and standardizing information from multiple sources. The team frequently found user-reported data to be inconsistent as well. To address this issue, Sustaio turned to Arcadia — leveraging the Arc platform to enable users to seamlessly connect their utility accounts. This integration facilitates automatic tracking of essential energy and water consumption data, ultimately helping customers choose from a range of eco-friendly options in their marketplace.
With Arc's support, Sustaio has achieved the scalability required to provide users with the data necessary for measuring and monitoring energy and water consumption. This operational efficiency lets their team focus less on data collection and more on developing strategies to reduce users' environmental impact, all while incentivizing them to make sustainable choices.
As Olivia Pedersen, Founder & CEO of Sustaio, remarked, "Arcadia seems like the most modern approach. We looked at competitors, and their APIs were not clean and just seemed like a nightmare to integrate with. Arcadia seems to have the most modern product available."
Arc’s automated utility data collection seamlessly delivers this critical data to Fusebox via API to shorten the time it takes to receive a utility bill, analyze it, and resolve any issues or inefficiencies found.
Backpack is a data platform for the built world that uses automated utility data collection through Arc to incorporate energy, water, and waste information into their system of record for buildings.
