Coast to coast, U.S. states are adopting ambitious Energy Efficiency Resource Standards that require utilities to deliver verified energy efficiency. With some standards ratcheting up as much as 2 percent annually, how can utilities keep up?
With the help of smart thermostats. Heating and cooling account for as much as 50 percent of residential energy usage, and air conditioning is a driving force behind peak demand. Thus, thermostats are in a unique position to help utilities and their customers save energy.
