Make a real difference on climate change...with just the click of a button. Every few minutes, your local power grid has surplus clean power available from renewable or highly efficient power plants. If your appliances only used electricity at your local grid's clean moments, they would generate a lot less pollution. And now they can. WattTime's groundbreaking tools analyze the power grid to identify these moments in real time. Our software can also empower your intelligent devices to shift energy use to these moments, substantially reducing pollution without any change in equipment operations, user comfort, or energy costs.
