We've Done This Before

The team behind bellaWatt's platform has built numerous Cost of Service and rate design models for electric utilities.

We have also built a budgeting application for the US Department of Energy. The original process was driven by Excel spreadsheets - just like today's Cost of Service models - with 80+ people sending large files across 10+ nationwide locations. We redesigned the workflow into a streamlined data collection and reporting web application that integrated seamlessly with their existing processes.

The electric industry is changing.

Renewables are grid-viable, outdated infrastructure needs repairs, and EVs are becoming ubiquitous. The challenge of setting fair electricity prices is more pertinent than ever and consumers, market participants and electric utilities are demanding fairness.

Bellawatt can help you understand the cost to serve the next generation of the grid.
