Opto 22, eSight Energy Enable Web-Based Energy Management for Small- to Mid-Sized Businesses

Opto 22's monitoring hardware integrates with the eSight software management to help reduce utility bills

A new strategic partnership between Opto 22 and eSight Energy has allowed the two companies to integrate their respective offerings, expanding Opto 22’s portfolio of energy management software platforms. Facility managers, building owners, energy managers and others now have another option for monitoring, gathering and visualizing their energy consumption.

Developed by Chicago-based eSight Energy, the web-based energy management and analysis suite interfaces with the OptoEMU Sensor, connecting commercial and industrial customers to metering devices, electrical panels, machines and equipment.

Opto 22 and eSight Energy will debut their integrated energy monitoring, management and data analysis today, Aug. 24, at the eSight Energy Annual Summit at Soldier Field in Chicago.

"By combining our expertise and enabling our technology to work with that of several different energy management software providers, including eSight Energy, we're able to give engineering and automation teams multiple ways to gain the visibility and data they need to establish new energy usage policies and practices that significantly cut their utility bills," Opto 22 CEO Mark Engman said.
