If you were following the New York Energy Week (#NYEW2016), then you likely followed the Women Disrupting Power panel and the female leaders sharing their experiences and advice to further grow and innovate this exciting space. As a woman-owned business, we thank you for your inspiration!
Beyond the incredible women in this industry, there are also incredible women inside the home, holding power and impact beyond measure.

The Connected Home industry continues to evolve the way in which we will live and run our homes, but the big question is….
“Despite an estimated $279 billion potential U.S. market for energy efficiency, just a fraction of this has been spent. The industry’s greatest failure, arguably, is tied to how products and services are framed and sold to customers.”
We've been talking to consumers all over the country about buying appliances:
- The process.
- How they handle it.
- What they look for.
- How they relate it to energy efficiency.
