Residents earn bill credits from participating in utility programs or from shifting consumption from peak to off-peak electricity times.
Onsite PV Storage
Cloud-based integration with a local PV inverter allows thermal energy storage of excess solar and increased solar self-consumption.
Remotely identify most issues, such as burnt out elements and leaks, and automatically alert maintenance team.
Grid Service Value
Our industry leading software and machine learning expertise enable Shifted Energy to deliver flexible, customized services to you and your customers. After optimizing water heaters to support consumer energy goals, our system can provide multiple grid services to local utilities and distribution system operators.
Consumer-friendly Load Shifts
Multi-hour load shifts by storing energy during periods of high renewable generation and reducing consumption during peak demand.
Frequency & Voltage Regulation
Locally-based detection and actuation enables sub-second response time to frequency or voltage deviations, as well as randomized return-to-load.
Emergency Demand Response
Full fleet shut down to quickly shed maximum kW. Randomized return-to-load ensures smooth recovery after contingency event ends.
