Opower Planning IPO for Power-Management Technology, WSJ Says

Opower Inc., a provider of energy-monitoring software, is planning an initial public offering, according to the Wall Street Journal.

President and co-founder Alex Laskey declined to comment today when reached by telephone by Bloomberg News.
