Rainforest conducted a pilot of our new in-app alert system with BC Hydro as part of their PeakSaver residential behavioral demand response program.  Participants with access to their real-time usage data using our EAGLE-200 gateway were further motivated by real-time alerts on their smart phones to cut back electricity use during times of peak demand on the BC Hydro grid.  What we found was that pilot participants saved up to 50% on their energy use during peak events -- considerably more than those who were only notified by email.  Read all the details in our white paper....

Leading provider of energy monitoring technology takes aim at the complexity and cost of BYOD programs Rainforest Automation, Inc. is proud to announce a major extension to its platform and service offering, supported by its partner, Plasmatic Technologies Inc. The new Rainforest Integrated Connected Home (RICH) solution pulls together energy management and the smart home into an intelligent platform designed to help electric utilities execute engaging and effective Demand Side Management (DSM) programs.

"The ability to harmonize a broad range of devices, whether purchased and installed...
