Amigo Solar goes live with electricity billing on microgrids in Chile
MaxBill supports multi-layered pricing schemes for the supply of a combination of renewable and traditional electricity
LogNet Billing, the provider of Modern Billing solutions for service providers worldwide, has deployed its MaxBill solution for Amigo Solar, a provider of electricity for the regulated B2C market in Chile.
Amigo Solar owns and operates a portfolio of behind-the-meter distributed energy resources (DER), consisting of peak-demand storage systems, rooftop photovoltaic systems, smart meters and data loggers, which allow the company to manage and optimize their consumers’ demand and create more favorable economic conditions for the supply of electricity.
Amigo Solar deploys its Intelligent Solar Electricity Network platform (RESI – Red Eléctrica Solar Inteligente) in residential and office buildings, business parks, industrial facilities, shopping centers and other similar types of properties to aggregate demand and establish intelligent microgrids. Amigo Solar’s digitalized back office processes has enabled the company to become 100% customer-centric and disrupt a market that has historically been deprived of any form of competition.
Amigo Solar’s business model involves supplying renewable electricity to small (<10 kW) and medium-sized (<100 KW) consumers at competitive rates that are lower than the regulated rates offered by the incumbent regulated utilities in their respective concession areas of service.
The MaxBill solution from LogNet Billing is used by Amigo Solar to handle all of the company’s customer management and billing activities. Amigo Solar relies on the advanced billing and reconciliation capabilities of MaxBill to support its multi-layered pricing schemes.
Amigo Solar selected MaxBill after conducting a proof-of-concept (PoC) trial and is currently using the solution in a SaaS model. LogNet Billing completed the full deployment of the MaxBill system within one month.
