Smart thermostats let you control your home’s climate remotely and view your energy use via the web or a mobile app. The system can actually learn from your behavior to self-adjust to certain conditions, such as humidity. You can save energy by setting different temperatures for various times of the day.
Smart plugs and power strips enable you to remotely control the devices and appliances plugged into them. They include outlets and switches used to more easily control your energy use even when you’re away.
These power strips automatically switch off unnecessary standby power when you turn off a connected device.
When an electronic device goes into standby mode, it uses less power than when it is fully functioning. A Tier 2 smart power strip can detect this drop in power and disable the outlet, cutting off the device's power supply to prevent idle load.
Unlike a traditional electrical outlet, a smart outlet uses the existing wiring in your home to let you turn on, shut off, control, and provide feedback about the device plugged into it.
Bring innovation home with appliances that can automatically adjust based on settings you choose as well as signals they receive. Smart appliances can take your efficiency to new heights by sharing energy demand patterns on a mobile app or home display. They can also run at lower energy rates by detecting when power consumption in your area is at its lowest.
State-of-the-art features let you remotely adjust the temperature, see what’s inside without opening the door, delay defrost, pause ice-maker cycles, and do even more to save energy.
Smart washers let you remotely control and monitor the status of your loads using a smartphone app. You can also download custom cycles, such as a setting designed to remove grass stains. Some smart washers can even recognize smaller loads and use less energy and water.
Smart dryers give you remote access to delay start times, choose cycles, and adjust drying times. Plus, you can receive alerts that tell you the minute your dryer completes a cycle. Being able to delay start times will be helpful as SCE transitions to a Time-Of-Use (TOU) rate structure, which lowers your cost for energy during certain hours.
Smart dishwashers offer built-in efficiency and major control. You can choose your cycle, start time, cycle duration, and even which dishwasher zones you want to target—all remotely. They can also monitor performance, tell you if your detergent is low, and alert you to any leaks.
Smart electric water heaters deliver hot water faster than most standard electric water heaters—and do it a lot more efficiently through hybrid heat pump technology. Some models also use Wi-Fi connectivity and a mobile app to give you remote control over your water systems. And many offer customizable temperature, vacation settings, energy savings, and system monitoring while you’re at home or away. SCE offers a $200 rebate for purchasing and installing a qualifying Hybrid Electric Heat Pump Water Heater.
Smart plugs and power strips enable you to remotely control the devices and appliances plugged into them. These include outlets and switches that you can use to more easily control your energy use even when you’re away from the office.
A lot of business equipment features a standby mode, which uses less power than when these machines are fully functioning. Tier 2 smart power strips can detect this drop in power and disable the outlet. This cuts off the device's power supply to prevent idle load.
To maximize energy efficiency, try installing smart outlets that use the existing wiring in your facility to let you turn on and shut off the devices plugged into them. These outlets also provide feedback about your devices.
Smart appliances can automatically adjust to your preferred settings and keep you up to date by sharing energy-demand patterns via a display or mobile app. Plus, they can run at lower energy rates when power consumption in your area is at its lowest, helping your business reduce its energy costs.
Smart refrigerators let employees see what’s inside without opening the door and give you the flexibility to remotely adjust the temperature, defrost, pause ice-maker cycles, or reduce the average power draw. These features all help your business improve its energy efficiency in the kitchen, with little effort.
A smart dishwasher can streamline your energy use through remote access that gives you the power to adjust start times and lengths, choose cycles, and keep an eye on the dishwasher’s status by receiving cycle alerts.
If your business has laundry needs, smart washers and dryers may be a sensible choice. Remote capabilities let you adjust start times, choose cycles, and monitor the washer’s status via alerts for cycle completion—all of which can have a positive impact on your energy bill.
Participating in SCE’s programs is an easy way to help you realize energy savings, and take advantage of opportunities to manage your energy more efficiently.
