Who We Are
Bidgely (which means “electricity” in Hindi) is working to solve one of the biggest challenges in energy: enabling utilities to meet their demand-side energy goals by fully engaging and satisfying their customers. We’re a highly energetic and innovative team that has developed ground-breaking analytics that can itemize home energy usage data to the appliance level without using any plug-level monitors. Now, we are setting out to deliver this technology to millions of households across the world and help save energy on a massive scale.
How We Got Here
Bidgely was founded in 2011 by Abhay Gupta and Vivek Garud, who were united by a passion to change the way we think about our home energy consumption and a vision for a low-cost technology that could achieve global impact.
From its origins of two guys in a garage in Mountain View, CA with a big idea, Bidgely quickly grew into a team of brilliant data scientists, engineers, salespeople and marketers housed in Sunnyvale, CA.
Where We’re Going
And we’re just getting started. There are 5.6 billion people with access to electricity across the world today, and this will only continue to grow. We want to be the engine for every household everywhere to understand their energy usage and make informed decisions that are good for their pocketbooks and good for the planet. We won’t stop until we get there.
Our investors play a huge role in helping us shape the future of engaging with energy. Leading cleantech investor Khosla Ventures got us started. Khosla continues to fund us and today is joined by European utilities E.ON and Innogy and Constellation Technology Ventures (U.S. based Exelon Corporation) whose family of energy companies include Baltimore Gas & Electric, Commonwealth Edison, and PECO.
