Home Backup Power

Management Systems

The average home wastes energy every day. 
Typical causes of energy waste in the home include:

  • Lights left on
  • Phone chargers left plugged in
  • Laptops and tablets left on and plugged in
  • Heating or air conditioning set too high or too low
  • Water heater set too hot

With more and more electronic devices in the home, how can you keep up?  How can you take control of your home's energy use and actually reduce wasted energy (and your electric bill?!)

Beyond wasted energy, in some locations, you pay more for electricity at different times of the day.  So doing your laundry during the afternoon could cost you more money than doing it in the evening.  With this kind of complexity, how can you keep up, let alone get control of the situation?

Home Energy Management System

A home energy management system (HEMS) lets you see your home’s electrical use in real-time, all day, everyday.  A home energy management system is a combination of hardware and software built into your home’s electrical system.  You can access this system through an app on your phone, putting the power to reduce energy waste (and your electrical bill) in the palm of your hand.

Knowing is half the battle

The power of home energy management is data, shown in easy-to-read graphs, right on your phone.  Once you see how your home is using energy throughout the day, you can take control.  You can find out what’s using the most energy and when, and start making changes to reduce your home energy use. And simple changes can make a big difference.  Common changes homeowners make once they have the ability to see how much energy is costing them during the day include:

  • Turning lights off when you leave the room
  • Unplugging all phone chargers when not in use
  • Laptops and tablets turned off and unplugged when not in use
  • Setting the thermostat just a few degrees warmer or colder
  • Reducing the water heater temperature
  • Doing laundry at a different time

Homeowners who take action using the data a home energy monitor system provides typically see a 20% reduction in their utility bill*.
