SP AusNet empowers customers to mange their electricity - 27 Jan 2011

A strategic alliance has been formed between the Victorian electricity company SP AusNet and the GreenBox Group in relation to a pilot for a smart energy and electricity demand management service.

It is designed to allow households to manage and reduce their energy usage in a simple way, as well as to provide savings. The service also seeks to provide tangible benefits to energy networks and energy retailers.

SP AusNet will work with GreenBox to explore how the new technology can operate with smart grids. The pilot is expected to commence in the second quarter of 2011.

The company aims to enable households to reduce their energy consumption without affecting their lifestyles or making a capital investment through the introduction of a smart energy management system which allows them stay in control of their energy bills and contribute to saving the environment.
