Did you know homes represent 20% of the total greenhouse gas emissions? If you are in this blog, this is probably something you suspected and decided to tackle. These 20% are mainly due to the energy we consume. Therefore, every time you reduce your energy consumption, you concretely act to reduce your own impact on the planet.

It is easier said than done. Energy is rather invisible behind our walls. Hence the importance of installing a Home Energy Management System. this type of smart home system is trendy as well as enables you to visualize your energy consumption real-time and advice you on where and how you could avoid wasting energy. If you have solar panels installed, you can also visualize how much you produce and what are the best decision to be made so you use the maximum amount of the electricity you produce.

Power your home with solar​

Consuming less energy is a good thing for the planet, consuming energy which comes from a clean source is even better!

To this perspective, you can consider generating your own energy through photovoltaic panels installed on the roof. Even better, with a proper home energy management in place that can monitor and control the appliances and electrical systems, you can maximize the consumption of the energy produced by the solar panel.

  • Automatically power appliances or some devices as soon as solar energy is available (hot water tank actuator, EV chargers…).​
  • Store the surplus energy in a battery or for later use.
  • And finally monitor production and consumption through a single app!
