"The goal of our newly-formed relationship with ElectrIQ Power is to learn how the storage technology can be used to deliver innovative and sustainable homes that can aid us in building communities of the future. Our goal is to be able to build homes that can mitigate demand charges, provide grid services and are more resilient to grid outages," said Subhi Alsayed, Vice President of Sustainable Development at Mattamy Homes.
The software provided by ElectrIQ will also include an IoT platform for interoperability between the IQ System and some of the most popular smart home appliances including thermostats, refrigerators, hot water heaters, smart plugs, and EV chargers. These integrations will allow the IQ System to understand and optimize power usage at the appliance-level, thereby unlocking additional homeowner savings.
