To best understand the how, where and to what degree energy is being used in a home is handled by Home Area Networks. A Home Area Network (HAN) is a network of energy management devices, digital consumer electronics, signal-controlled or enabled appliances, and applications within a home environment that is on the home side of the electric meter. GoodCents utilizes its decades of experience in demand response and working inside the home to leverage optimal solutions for our customers by establishing the most effective HAN’s to allow for maximum understanding of usage. We work with our Utility clients to identify, enroll and implement the networks, as well as analyze the data for future program usage.
GoodCents’ AMI offering combines smart meter deployment, infrastructure component installation, proprietary scheduling and routing applications, and customer call centers. The combined offering ensures the most efficient deployment of smart grid programs, and positions GoodCents as an important link between the Utility and its customers.
