Powering industry-leading solar solutions and services
Automated delivery of electrical utility data can help operationalize the data gathering process in your sales cycle. With access to your prospects’ electricity history, you can create a seamless customer experience, generate an accurate quote, and spend your time focusing on closing the deal.
Once Urjanet customers provide their prospect’s utility username and password, our technology is able to programmatically access and deliver data and bill images.
The end-user experience is highly customizable and can be catered to your specific requirements. Here is a common use case: Your prospect receives a marketing email from you promoting a free and easy quote. The prospect then clicks on a link in the email where they are driven to a landing page with an integrated form that requests their Utility, Username, and Password in addition to the common questions you ask when building a quote. Once their information is entered, Urjanet is able to retrieve their historical electric consumption data and deliver it directly to you.

Urjanet returns data from all of the historical bills from the utility’s website, providing you with actionable insights on a solar prospect’s name, address, usage, cost, demand and tariff.
Urjanet offers several options for receiving your data, including through the Urjanet API or by download from the Urjanet Console.
Data is returned within minutes of submitting a prospect’s username and password, creating a frictionless user experience in the proposal process.
Access to the Urjanet Utility Data Platform is secured by a combination of network security and authentication requirements, ensuring that only authorized personnel have access. Sensitive data is stored encrypted at rest using AES-256 encryption. Data is transferred both inside and outside our platform using SSL/TLS, SSH, and SFTP.
