Sheetz to manage energy use through artificial intelligence technology
Sheetz will leverage a state-of-the-art energy intelligence platform to manage its energy spend.
The convenience store retailer announced that it will manage its energy use through Pear.ai, an energy intelligence platform offered by Constellation and its affiliate company, Exelon Generation Services. The platform provides businesses with utility expense management and centralized, streamlined access to all of its utility data, as well as meaningful analytics. Sheetz will use Pear.ai to manage its comprehensive utility footprint, which includes power, gas and water across all 617 of its store locations.
The Pear.ai technology processes thousands of bills per week to identify bill anomalies, generate insights and model predictive behavior through machine learning. The platform also sends customer alerts to correct issues proactively using a direct conversational functionality that eliminates the need to wait, or pay additional fees, for information from an account or support representative.
Through a multi-year agreement, which begins in April 2021, Sheetz will be able to access the Pear.ai service independently, directly through the Pear.ai portal.
“As a steadily growing business rooted in data and analytics, Sheetz is well-positioned to take full advantage of the depth and flexibility of the Pear.ai platform and its supporting team,” said Mark Huston, president, Constellation’s National Retail Business. “We’re excited Sheetz will be able to leverage this solution to optimize its utility portfolio and manage its energy spend.”
Pear.ai was acquired by Constellation parent company, Exelon Generation Company, in early 2020.
