In addition to saving Homeowners hundreds of dollars a year in energy costs, EcoFactor’s data-rich application provides the unprecedented ability to document savings on a house-by-house, day-by-day basis. These documented results prove that our automated energy management solution can significantly lower residential energy usage for consumers and simultaneously improve demand response yield for utilities, while providing unprecedented measurement and verification granularity.
EcoFactor's patented quantitative modeling tools analyze each individual home without requiring detailed surveys or any in-house data beyond what EcoFactor learns from the thermostat. We use the resulting model to predict HVAC usage for individual systems under varying conditions. These advanced tools allow EcoFactor to compute the marginal increase (or decrease) in HVAC load for a given change in set point and/or outside weather conditions – with or without smart meter integration.
Without smart meters, EcoFactor provides detailed minute-by-minute HVAC operational data – not just for a few houses that have data loggers, but for each connected system, 24/7/365. And EcoFactor stores it all. That vast storage and processing capability allows EcoFactor to report the results of DR events within minutes after the completion of a DR event for EVERY optimized system.
With AMI integration, EcoFactor can correlate that data stream with utility whole-house data, and deliver HVAC consumption records with unprecedented accuracy.
