EnergyHub will make the Amazon Smart Thermostat available to its base of over 60 utility clients as part of the industry’s largest distributed energy resource ecosystem. The expanded offering further enables utilities nationwide to achieve their decarbonization goals while delivering exceptional consumer experiences and choice.
EnergyHub, the industry-leading provider of distributed energy resource (DER) management solutions (DERMS), today announced Amazon Smart Thermostat is now included in the company’s partner ecosystem. EnergyHub’s utility clients, who already have access to the nation’s largest partner network, will benefit from the additional scale and peak-shaving capabilities the integration delivers to their demand response programs.
“The addition of the Amazon Smart Thermostat to EnergyHub’s BYOT (Bring Your Own Thermostat) Program is a natural step in our commitment to offer our utility clients turnkey access to the nation’s largest and most diverse ecosystem of device partners. We look forward to helping our customers achieve their decarbonization goals by increasing the number of consumers eligible to participate in demand response programs,” said Seth Frader-Thompson, EnergyHub’s President.
Amazon Smart Thermostat customers can participate in energy demand response programs to help utilities reduce load during peak periods and achieve savings. The Amazon Smart Thermostat is manufactured by Resideo, an EnergyHub device partner. It is ENERGY STAR® certified, integrated with Amazon’s Alexa voice service, and retails for $59.99 USD.
“Amazon brings a tremendous amount of brand equity that will resonate with Salt River Project (SRP) customers and encourage them to consider enrollment in the residential demand response (BYOT) program. Expansion of the program is vital in keeping our commitment to customers to achieve our 2035 Sustainability Goals,” said Eamonn Urey, Program Manager, SRP.
