How can businesses use smart meters?



  1. 0 Votes

    Smart meters are advanced electricity meters that provide the user with useful information and details about electricity consumption rather than just giving a figure for the total amount of electricity used.  While smart meters are still not incredibly widespread in the US, both businesses and homes have the potential to benefit from them.  For example, in California PG&E is considering making these standard.  The meters they plan on using provide information on hourly consumption.  They may then set up a program that rewards both homes and businesses who shift their energy use to non peak hours.  This could help any business or family to save money.  Data from the meters could also help people to be more green if they use the data the meters provide.
