Major Appliance Producers to Adopt Environment-Friendly Smart Energy Meters

POWRtec International, an energy monitoring company based in California, has released a statement on the current developments in smart energy meter-compatible home appliances.

Smart energy meters are intelligent devices that are advantageous to both consumers as well as energy companies. They also benefit the environment. The devices facilitate residential consumers to control their usage of energy. Power utility companies can then monitor and measure the energy usage and avoid providing overcapacity.

Many prominent manufacturers of home appliances are developing products that are compatible with smart energy meters. These appliances can communicate with the meters. POWRtec's smart energy meters can be networked, which allows them to control energy consuming devices connected to the network. The meter monitors the consumption and switches the devices on and off according to the energy output required. The meter helps reduce energy waste, contributing to a better environment.

POWRtec CEO, Grant Jasmin, commented that major manufacturers of consumer electronics products were producing smart appliances that worked harmoniously with the company’s smart meters.

Whirlpool, a major home appliance manufacturer, has announced that before the end of 2011 it intends to manufacture one million smart appliances. The company has made a commitment that before 2016 it will make its appliances compatible with smart-grids.

LG Electronics, another home appliance manufacturer, has announced that by 2015 it will make its appliances compatible with smart-grids. LG’s new Thinq line of consumer appliances are compatible with smart meters and can communicate with them. The company showcased these products recently. This salient feature helps consumers save money by making the appliance to run when electricity is at lower-cost.
