ETS heating solutions don't just reduce electricity usage and cost for the end-user. Thanks to off-peak and smart grid technologies, power companies also stand to substantially increase the efficiency of generation, transmission and distribution of power. Smart grid transmission networks incorporate digital technologies that allow for a more streamlined and efficient approach to power distribution.
Steffes heating solutions are smart-grid ready and have the ability to respond to real-time pricing, load & demand management, alternative energy, frequency control and other signals available from power companies. This allows power companies to better manage their infrastructure and dramatically reduce the peaks and valleys that occur from changes in consumer energy demand.
Smart metering is an extension of smart grid technology that puts unprecedented power into the hands of consumers and power companies. Unlike traditional home electricity meters, smart meters provide a wealth of information about personal energy usage. This information is recorded automatically for review by both the consumer and the electric company.
With smart metering, your energy consumption is recorded throughout the day for on-peak and off-peak times and even shoulder-peak times if they exist. The majority of energy usage in homes and some businesses is for space and water heating. By being more informed about our own energy consumption and by using a Steffes Heating System, the majority of this energy usage can be shifted to low cost, off-peak hours which results in significant savings. Great comfort, convenience, safety and reliability – all automatically controlled without having to make a lifestyle adjustment.
