Genability provides tools to gain insight into electricity usage. The Genability API is a RESTful interface to detailed, accurate and up-to-date tariff and energy pricing data. Search by zipcode and other criteria.
The API provides a fully functional tariff calculator that uses actual reading data to compute a tariff bill. Reading data can be stored within the APIs for quicker calculations.
Also, the API offers a way to find out current and look ahead pricing for a zipcode so you can intelligently determine when the cost of electricity will go up or down.
Although the API is not free, it offers low entry level rates. Rates are primarily based on the number of unique tariffs accessed per month.
The API can respond with JSON or JSONP formats.
There are helpful PHP, Rails and Java libraries on Github https://github.com/Genability
Genability is a software company providing energy suppliers and distributors with technology to market, sell and increase value to customers. We help solar, energy procurement, connected home, efficiency and other businesses understand their customers' energy costs, determine what their products are saving, and turn insight into opportunity. We have the industry's only accurate and comprehensive cloud-based retail tariff database and rate engine. The Company is a recipient of the Department of Energy SunShot Initiative and based in San Francisco.
Genability, an energy data firm that enables new energy companies such as solar developers and EV manufacturers to integrate smart energy solutions into their products and services, recently announced an initiative that will distribute solar savings data, via an API, to consumers and players in the solar energy market.

Genability was founded in 2010 with a simple goal: "to empower consumers and producers to choose cleaner, cheaper power." To reach its goal, Genability created and utilizes tools to gain insight into electricity usage. Genability now looks to focus its tools specifically at solar energy after becoming a SunShot Awardee. The Department of Energy (DOE)'s SunShot Initiative "aims to drive solar to cost-competition with other energy sources by 2020." The $500,000 award allows Genability to develop the Genability API as well as "Data tools to instantly and accurately calculate and optimize the savings of implementing solar PV."
Having an infant in the house combined with the winter weather has caused energy usage in our household to skyrocket. We are always keeping an eye out for ways to save and ProgrammableWeb lists great tools to help out. This week we'll look at mashups that help users monitor their energy consumption, become educated on energy and encourage them to reduce how much energy they are using.
