Amaze your
customers with
smart automations,
insights, and savings.

Our advanced analytics allow you to simplify the incredibly complex utility space for your customers. Now you can identify savings for them, optimize devices and rates, and create new engagement opportunities that enhance brand value.

Now it’s easy to...

Find every customer the best rate

Spark’s rate optimization capabilities are now powered by Genability, the industry’s leading tariff engine and rate calculator. By automating complex cost calculations, you can effortlessly analyze tens of thousands of combinations of rates, tariffs, and incentives to ensure that every customer always gets the best rate possible.

Pull back the
kWh curtain

Most utility billing makes it far too hard for anyone to
understand what they are being charged and why. By turning
esoteric utility charges into clear and simple energy insights,
you can win customers over by providing the transparency
they crave.

Make smart devices smarter

Deliver customer value by optimizing energy use around complex utility rate structures to maximize savings. Show end users how to shift energy use to when it's cheapest and leverage smart devices and charging
automations to save without lifting a finger.

in Action

Case Study

The electric vehicle home charging experience can raise a lot of questions for new EV drivers — when is the best time of day to charge? How much will it cost? Years of pulling up to a gas station and seeing a price per gallon listed have conditioned drivers to expect predictable fuel purchases. But the cost of home charging is a black box. That's why Ford uses Genability's Signal API to access the world’s most comprehensive utility price database and enable new features that help their drivers save money on home charging.

Read the case

Genability solved an important problem for us. As EV adoption accelerated, we needed a scalable solution that provides accurate data of utility rates across the US and Canada. The Signal API service enables us to help our customers charge their EV at the most cost-efficient times, reinforcing one of the value propositions of EV ownership.
