RedGrid had the opportunity to test their home energy automation technology with leading property developer, Mirvac, in their coveted Tullamore development. Residents joined a unique trial that connected their household devices together, from washing machines to wine fridges, and provided information through a smart-phone app on their energy use.
The app also notified them when it was the best time to use their appliances and benefit from renewable energy in the grid. For using energy at the right time, residents were given exclusive rewards.
Ultimately, households saw a 68% reduction on their RedGrid connected home appliances, and saved up to $300 per year by using the app.
