Partnership opens the door to energy options for Westchester County consumers and businesses
Westchester Power Program Director Dan Welsh
There’s a lot of exciting things in the pipeline for customers, including new electric supply contract options, community solar and other energy products.
Westchester Power, the first community choice aggregation (CCA) in New York, has engaged Ampion, Inc. for Customer Relationship, Billing and Payment and EDI services.
Westchester will use the Ampion Software platform to provide enhanced back office services, including reporting, customer care, online billing and payment, and utility EDI communication. Ampion will also service Westchester residents directly through its CCA customer portal, allowing participants to access their energy consumption, billing information, savings, environmental impact, and other account information.
“There’s a lot of exciting things in the pipeline for customers, including new electric supply contract options, community solar and other energy products” says Dan Welsh, Program Director at Westchester Power. “Information is the key to maximizing customer value, and Ampion’s systems will provide a common, robust platform to facilitate engagement with both customers and municipal stakeholders while also helping us grow and account for our business.”
Ampion CEO Nate Owen looks forward to the impact this partnership will bring, not only to Westchester but to the communities that will follow its lead. “Community Choice Aggregations are a powerful movement across the country and we are excited to enable Westchester Power through our software platform,” he said. “At Ampion, we believe that software is the great enabler of energy markets, and in particular, the movement to distributed generation and community renewables.”
