@ericvanular Yeah, we have a pretty good relationship with other startups in the accelerator! I pulled some data from Utility API (an EEx company which allows people to share their electricity usage), because we model electricity usage (and grid utilitization) at the house/neighborhood/city/utility level. I went to some tech talks at Stem (a battery storage company), and work with someone who used to work there. We also got connected to some customers in the Hawaii government, because EEx is based in Hawaii and Hawaii was the first state to commit to 100% renewables.
Our CEO does more of that kind of stuff (I'm just a software engineer), but yes, I would say that it has been overwhelmingly positive for us.
