With the global customer in mind, PICOwatt® is designed to be used anywhere in the world and can be installed in commercial, residential or industrial facilities.

For example, electrical office equipment now makes up at least 25% of commercial energy use. Hands down this is one of the fastest growing uses of electrical energy. How much electrical energy is wasted at your office when employees go home after work leaving all the electrical office equipment on? PICOwatt® empowers you to monitor how much electricity these devices are using, at what time of day equipment is on, and exactly what you are spending to power attached devices. PICOwatt® also shows you what you are spending to power equipment, and most importantly, PICOwatt® enables you to control, and eliminate wasted energy use saving you money.

Tenrehte PICOwatt<sup>®</sup> Smart Plug

PICOwatt® helps you identify standby power. Standby power, also called vampire power, phantom load, or leaking electricity, refers to the electric power consumed by electric or electronic devices while they are switched off, enter sleep mode, or are in standby mode. You believe the device is essentially off, and you might even hear the satisfying click of an internal relay or switch when you turn off your electronic devices. In reality the unit is still powered on, internally wasting electricity and running up your electric bill. By continually monitoring your devices, PICOwatt® shows you how much energy is being wasted when a unit is supposed to be switched off.

To eliminate standby power, PICOwatt® enables you to intelligently control the power supplied to plugged-in appliances. By creating profiles to automatically turn off the power when the attached equipment is not needed, standby power consumption is reduced to zero.

PICOwatt® also includes predictive analytics to help you uncover unexpected energy usage so that you can make smarter energy conservation decisions to improve your energy efficiency. PICOwatt® includes easy-to-use predictive analytics features that meet the needs of users with skill levels from beginners to experienced users to identify and eliminate energy waste.

Unlike other products you can buy for electrical energy monitoring, PICOwatt® requires no additional support equipment such as one or more computers, radio dongles, and additional gateways to build a system to monitor and control your electrical energy use - additional equipment that adds cost, consumes additional electricity, and simply wastes your money.

PICOwatt® is a fault tolerant, standalone, set and forget Smart Plug that is built upon a sophisticated blend of hardware, software, and algorithms all developed by Tenrehte Technologies to help you get control of your energy use and save you money on your electrical utility bill.

And while one PICOwatt® can operate by itself, if you have more than one PICOwatt® on your network they cooperate to save you even more money and greatly enhance your energy efficiency and energy conservation targets. PICOwatt® also provides you with additional value added features such as the ability to be accessed from any internet enabled device, Smart Phone apps, and a Facebook application which enhances the social aspects of energy efficiency and energy conservation.

In support of emerging Smart Grid applications, PICOwatt® is compliant with Smart Meter requirements such as Zigbee SEP 1.x, Zigbee SEP 2.0, CEA-2045 and the Energy Usage Information Model.

PICOwatt® Automates Curtailment

The word is out. Energy storage with batteries (or any other type of storage) is not as effective as curtailment technologies to furthering renewable energy and energy independence. Please see this page or PDF for a full report on curtailment.

The use of two-way communications, sensors, and distributed automation technology will dramatically improve the efficiency, reliability, and safety of power delivery and use.

Load Adjustment/Load Balancing

The total load connected to the power grid can vary significantly over time. Believe it or not, the total power load depends on many individual choices of energy users. For example, the grid becomes unstable if a popular television program starts and millions of televisions draw current instantly, or many electric vehicles are plugged in all at once.

Automatic load reduction with intelligent sensors and switches from our PICOwatt® product line dramatically increases the strength of our Grid and provides a better chance for renewable energy sources to be effectively integrated.

Peak Curtailment/Leveling and Time Of Use Pricing

To reduce demand during the high cost peak usage periods, communications and metering technologies inform smart devices in the home and business when energy demand is high and track how much electricity is used and when it is used.

It also gives utility companies the ability to reduce consumption by communicating to devices directly in order to prevent system overloads.

Businesses and consumers see a direct economic benefit of using energy at off-peak times, including reducing energy cost of operation into their services, devices, and building construction decisions.

Sustainability

A flexible smart grid permits greater access to highly variable renewable energy sources such as solar power and wind power, even without the addition of energy storage.

PICOwatt® and PICO™ Technology enables existing network infrastructure to allow for many distributed feed-in points at the transmission-level. Rapid fluctuations in distributed generation, such as due to cloudy or gusty weather, present significant challenges to power engineers who need to ensure stable power levels through varying the output of the more controllable generators such as gas turbines and hydroelectric generators. PICOwatt® and PICO™ Technology is a bridge technology to enable improved flexibility and sustainability for energy consumers.

The Bottom Line

The bottom line? PICOwatt® from Tenrehte Technologies makes it simple for you to go green and save money. The more PICOwatt® Smart Plugs you install, the more money you will save!
