For residential and business customers, this means making it quicker and easier to electrify their properties and move away from carbon-based energy products.

As renewable energy continues to gain traction as a viable alternative to traditional power sources, this partnership seeks to address the growing demand for efficient solar panel and battery installation management.

UPowr’s SaaS solution provides a user-friendly platform that manages the system design, sale, and installation of solar systems, batteries, heat pumps, and other “Behind the Meter” assets and provides an end-to-end installer view that is unique to the market.

As the electrification of the home gathers pace, energy providers have an increased need to manage these processes to deliver exceptional, fast service to their customers. For home and business owners this technology allows them to effortlessly oversee the installation and maintenance of solar panels and batteries and empowers users to make informed decisions about their energy consumption, leading to reduced utility costs and a smaller carbon footprint.

This strategic alliance will see Gentrack integrate its state-of-the-art product-to-profit g2.0 solution with UPowr’s platform, enabling seamless, accurate, and transparent billing for solar energy consumption. Both companies are committed to working together to develop and implement solutions that benefit not only home and business owners but also the planet, as the world moves towards a more sustainable energy landscape.

UPowr chief technology officer Daniel Friedman said, “This partnership with Gentrack reinforces our shared vision of a greener and more sustainable future. By integrating our electrification platform with Gentrack’s billing expertise, we know that customers will have a simple data-driven and efficient pathway to electrifying their property with solar, battery, or electric vehicle charging.”
