Gridmates is a free software platform to be used and branded by utilities and nonprofits. Utilities will prevent the accumulation of bad debt from the unpaid bills of their customers who cannot afford to pay them and non profits will attract new funds to cover their utility bills. Gridmates offers a unique ecosystem that connects utility customers, non profits, corporate affinity partners and utilities to eliminate energy poverty. Gridmates is the first peer to peer energy sharing platform.
$11 billion dollars are utility revenue losses because 40 million U.S citizens cannot afford to pay their bills. At present, there is little chance that these bills can be collected from poor people using collection agencies. 40 million people in US face energy poverty. They have access to energy but cannot afford to use it or pay for it. Gridmates eliminates energy poverty providing a scalable solution in the cloud.
Gridmates is the first secure cloud platform for peer to peer energy sharing. A web and a mobile app that empowers people and corporations with the ability to share and gift energy to their friends, family and those in need by sending electricity units directly to their utility accounts using their laptops or mobile phones. Gridmates eliminates energy poverty by mobilizing energy through transacting units of energy.
