Art & Alan Were Right: It's the Plug Loads. And What To Do About It.

January 31, 2014 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Seminar Host/Point of Contact: 

Most Californian homes now have electric smart meters. HEA provides a low-cost online tool that quickly and accurately diagnoses the top areas of energy waste in a home, providing a triage service for residents and energy consultants. The talk will provide an overview of the tool and summarize results from over 1,000 participants in Energy Upgrade Mountain View.  Results include measured savings in energy use, utility bills and GHG emissions and a wealth of new data about how Californian homes use energy.  Steve hopes the talk will inspire discussions about how this type of data and analysis can improve energy efficiency programs and our understanding of residential energy use.
