About Sound Transit

Sound Transit is a public transportation agency serving the Seattle metro area that has used EnergyCAP for two years. They oversee utility accounts across three counties and multiple transit modes like light rail and buses.

The challenge

Prior to adopting EnergyCAP UtilityManagement, Sound Transit’s utility tracking and reporting was done manually using spreadsheets. With utilities tied to over 500 meters and spend forecasted to grow from $14M to $65M by 2051 as they expand, Sound Transit needed an automated system to scale.

"Before EnergyCAP, we were in a constant battle with spreadsheets—a time-consuming process inadequate for our growing operations."
Jaime Cervantes // Program Manager-Operations Utilities

The process

Sound Transit implemented EnergyCAP in 2021. Sound Transit now uses the data and reporting functionality in EnergyCAP UtilityManagement to track utility bills, flag billing errors and anomalies, investigate issues, and report insights. Custom Report Designer BI dashboards help various teams access and share data. 

The solution

EnergyCAP provides the system Sound Transit needs to automatically track expanding utilities. Features like configurable alerts and reporting templates enable Sound Transit to flag spikes for investigation. Report Designer BI dashboards share utility analytics across the organization. 

The results

Custom dashboards facilitated cross-divisional data sharing and insights.

With EnergyCAP, Sound Transit has: 

  • Investigated over 1,600 utility issues and anomalies in 2022 alone 
  • Created visibility into utility spend across locations, vendors, and commodities
  • Established documentation and tracking for 500+ meters to aid growth projections and planning 
“Thanks to EnergyCAP, we now have a clear window into our utility spend, transforming how we tackle over 1,600 utility issues annually."
