Reducing energy usage

During the summer months energy usage to power air conditioners, fans and other electronic devices not only can put a strain on the local energy company but it can also put on strain on people’s wallet. Not only is an empty wallet irritating but coming home to a hot humid day after riding a crowded subway is also annoying. Looking into ways to save energy, provide a cool apartment and saving money is on the horizon.

Summary

  • Mentions how GE, Frigidaire and Friedrich are looking into technologies that could turn on air conditioning remotely
  • Friedrich partnered with ThinkEco provides customers remote operational control and energy demand response
  • This gives more incentives for people to join their utility company’s “smart energy program”
  • Electrolux has also partnered with ThinkEco and created a cash incentive with local utilities

One thought on “Keep cool and save money

  1. I think it is very good thecnology​ in ther​ms of enabling users awareness. it is very hard to masure how small adjustments in home could lead big savings. such as simply changing 2 mostly used lamps into led lamp and these technologys​ could show excact​ly how it effects thus incentivize people to consume less and it is actually very simple technology reminds me one of my favorite sayings “humankind lend to moon before inventing 4 wheel luggage” 🙂
