Honeywell Helps Canadian Utilities Increase Energy Efficiency and Improve Grid Performance Through peaksaver Plus™ Programs
Honeywell will aim to enroll approximately 20,000 new customers in the utilities’ programs, adding to their existing peaksaver base of more than 40,000 homes. In return for their participation, customers will receive a free, professionally installed in-home energy display, as well as the Honeywell UtilityPRO® demand response thermostat, the original incentive for the programs.
According to estimates from the OPA, this will give the three utilities the ability to reduce combined demand by at least 30 megawatts when energy use peaks, usually on the hottest, most air-conditioning intense days of the year. The programs are also expected to help trim day-to-day electrical use in participating homes.
Along with installing the technology, Honeywell will handle appointment scheduling for the programs, as well as all data tracking, reporting and customer service.
