Energy Awareness Month 2013: Sensus Demand Response Technology Promotes Intelligent Electricity Consumption and Conservation
RALEIGH, N.C. --(Business Wire)--
Now, more than ever, it is critical that we all make intelligent
decisions about our energy consumption. Sensus,
a leading provider of clean technology solutions, is helping utilities
and their customers make intelligent decisions through its Demand
Response (DR) systems.
October is National Energy Awareness Month but many utilities are
joining Sensus to make energy conservation a daily activity. With Sensus
Load Control Modules and supporting software, utilities can deploy a
demand response solution anywhere over the FlexNetTM
communications network. Sensus' solutions provide innovative
technology that helps utilities around the world achieve optimum water
and energy conservation.
"Our smart grid solutions enable two-way communication between utilities
and their customers to help customers understand their energy usage,
make informed decisions and automate the execution of those decisions,"
said Sensus Vice Presdent of Marketing Greg Myers. "Ultimately, these
solutions improve customer satisfaction, allow customers to take a role
in energy conservation, reduce their carbon footprint and protect vital
utility capital and infrastructure investments."
How Demand Response helps utilities:
The DR application allows utilities to reduce peak demand by managing
load shedding programs and events to certified home area network devices
such as smart thermostats and in-home display devices.
How Demand Response helps customers:
The DR application allows consumers to personally monitor their energy
usage through online portals and better understand how much electricity
they regularly consume.
Energy awareness remains a top concern for government organizations as
Alliance Commission on National Energy Efficiency Policy has
developed a set of policy recommendations to double the U.S.'s energy
productivity by 2030. The Energy 2030 plan provides policy solutions
through investments, modernization and education and includes an in
depth analysis that illustrates how these gains in energy productivity
can increase U.S. GDP up to 2 percent, create annual savings of $327
billion and save the average household $1,039 per year. With DR
technology in place, utility customers can make more intelligent energy
decisions, as well as receive greater control over their electricity
As we observe Energy Awareness Month, Sensus, with 3,300 employees

resources. "Sensus' proven technology is here to help utilities and
their customer take an active role in conserving energy," said Myers.

usage and contribute to a greener future."
