Emerging Energy Solutions for Residential Customers
In partnership with the Institute for Electric Innovation, EEI released a collection of more than 35 case studies that describe how EEI member companies are using data and technology to advance customer services and solutions in five key areas: smart home energy management; online energy marketplaces; low- to moderate-income customer solutions; and residential bill payment options.
Data Source Benchmarking Database
In 2019, EEI Customer Solutions completed the 2019 DataSource Survey focused on the cost of serving residential customers. The 2019 results demonstrated the continuing trend toward digitization for bill payment and communications with customers, and the use of social media to quickly resolve customer inquiries. DataSource provides comprehensive benchmarking information across key customer service areas including: contact center, customer billing, cash posting, field services, meter reading, website/social media, and other areas. In addition to annual data, DataSource also provides information on trends in customer service. Participation in DataSource is free to EEI members.
