Modern Home Tech Could Reduce Peak Time Power Usage
As demand for electricity increases, utility companies are constantly looking for new ways to create more energy efficient system that reduce overall consumption and allow for greater efficiency in the grid. According to recent news, researchers have been given a grant in order to further research the benefits smart home technology can have in reducing our overall peak power usage - thereby optimizing our power grids.
Imagine the incredible good it would do to halve a Calgary household's power usage! It would enable an almost net-zero home to be possible when running off solar.
