BALTIMORE — Sheetz, a leading convenience store chain, announced today that it will manage its energy use through Pear.ai, a state-of-the-art energy intelligence platform offered to customers by Constellation and its affiliate company, Exelon Generation Services.
The Pear.ai platform provides businesses with utility expense management and centralized, streamlined access to all of their 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.
“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.”
The Pear.ai technology processes thousands of bills per week to identify bill anomalies, generate insights, and model predictive behavior through machine learning. Pear.ai 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. The technology has created meaningful savings for industrial, healthcare, retail store and higher education customers, among others.
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.
Pear.ai was acquired by Constellation parent company, Exelon Generation Company, in early 2020. Business customers can access the Pear.ai analytics platform either through Constellation directly or independently as a stand-alone service offering through Exelon Generation Services, LLC.
