bellweatherBellweather Solutions, a Louisville startup, is the recipient of Access Ventures’ most recent Growth Loan. Bellweather is a custom weather-normalization tool used by utilities to show historical weather patterns for load-planning purposes.

Founder Chris Heiniger is the managing director. He is a former economic analyst from LG&E.

According to the Access Ventures announcement, “Bellweather helps utilities understand energy use patterns, which is leveraged into more efficient operation and delivery.”

Current energy analytics don’t have a way of factoring in extreme weather. Bellweather does this by using “hourly observations and modeling weather response with thousands of polynomial equations.”

The Growth Loan for this early-stage company will allow Heiniger to visit conferences, create marketing material and bring on more clients.

Like Access Ventures, Bellweather is located in the Shelby Park neighborhood.
