Wattwatchers develops smart meters and controls that plug into the major energy consumers in a house or business (e.g. Hot Water, AirCon, Pool, etc) to measure consumption from these devices. This allows Evergen customers to see where their energy is being consumed (part of our education mission), and also allows the Evergen Intelligent Control algorithms to make even better decisions.
If Evergen customers save on average 80% on their energy costs already, we think the partnership with Wattwatchers will take us close to a 90% average. In addition, as the network infrastructure moves to be smarter, having these controls in their homes allows customers to earn revenue from the grid for controlling their loads.
As an example these smart systems could programmatically turn off Evergen controlled AC or Refrigeration for 5 minutes across thousands of homes to stabilise the grid and stop blackouts.
