In an era when the adaption smart technologies for tracking energy usage and performance is becoming more commonplace, electricity pioneer, General Electric has selected San Diego-based Advanced Telemetry, developer of EcoView Residential – as a wireless energy monitoring dashboard product that can help lower homeowner energy usage, utility bills and carbon emissions.
In a press release, Advanced Telemetry said its EcoView smart energy management system would provide light residential applications for a number of select energy conscious homebuilders in the country.
Specifically, GE is working with this group of homebuilders and developers to design homes that are comfortable, while achieving at least a 20% reduction in household energy usage, indoor water consumption and overall carbon emissions as compared to industry-accepted average new homes.
“EcoView Residential is an innovative solution addressing the rapidly growing smart grid industry, enabling homeowners to actively participate in taking the pressure off our overloaded grid infrastructure,” said Advanced Telemetry President Gus Ezcurra.
“We worked closely with GE’s builder and developer affiliates to deliver a feature rich, cost-effective, flexible and scalable product to meet their needs today and in the future. We’re honored to partner with General Electric and its esteemed builder and developer partners from coast to coast to help homeowners reduce resource usage, utility costs and their overall environmental footprint.”
In addition to EcoView Residential, all homes being built by the GE customers are equipped with an array of GE products that address today’s environmentally conscious consumer values. These include GE’s ENERGY STAR® appliances and Energy Smart™ compact fluorescent lighting package. Homeowners can now maximize benefits with these products when used in combination with the EcoView Residential energy monitoring touch screen, which gives them the power to measure and control utility use and better understand the true value of their home’s energy-efficient features.
