08 Oct In-app alerts spur dramatic savings
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.
