Between 2010 and 2011, commercial and industrial companies in California will be required to switch to new electric rates that are much higher during peak demand. We can help you reduce the impact of higher rates by enrolling you in a "Demand Response" program that will pay you to reduce your load during peak events.
During periods of peak demand, our system automatically reduces your electric usage by safely shutting down unnecessary loads and by power-cycling equipment based on a pre-arranged reduction plan. There are several ways to participate in load reduction without negatively impacting your business operation.
For the Sebastopol Community Center, we monitor and control three heat pumps, two 6kW solar panels, four temperature and light sensors, and two remotely programmable thermostats.
A Demand Response program offers financial incentives to customers that are willing to reduce their load during peak conditions.

PG&E Pilot summer 2010.
Akuacom, acting on behalf of Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) and Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (LBNL), invited proposals from manufacturers of HVAC or lighting control equipment that can be installed in small to medium sized businesses (20 - 200 kW peak power consumption). LimeAmps was selected as a participant in this pilot which is scheduled to run from June through October 2010
LimeAmps was a semi-finalist in the 2009 Clean Tech Open competition
"It is hard for teachers and office workers to associate their daily tasks with energy reductions when the monthly electric bill is so far removed from their daily activity. Your solution provides a direct feedback loop where they can turn off some piece of equipment and see an immediate reduction."
