EAC API Solution
Aside from the MPAN, the Estimated Annual Consumption, (EAC), is most important piece of information when it comes to the supply of energy to a property. Calculated from the historical consumption patterns at the meter, the forward looking EAC directly impacts accuracy of the customers first bill, the Direct Debit, the energy to be purchased in the wholesale market and the total savings that a customer could achieve when switching tariff.
Electralink’s Energy Market Data Hub is a platform to provide industry participants instantaneously access to data. Providing the actual EAC at the property via an API is the first implementation of platform to enable suppliers, Price Comparison Websites (PCWs) and Third Party Intermediaries (TPIs) to access this data on behalf of the customer.
By using our API suppliers, PCWs and TPIs can embed accurate consumption and industry data to their customer journeys, improving the user experience as well as increasing the accuracy of the data to ensure the Change Of Supplier process is optimal.
