Lumin

Lumin Smart Panel integration provides Sunnova Adaptive Home™ customers with whole-home backup, extended battery life, and energy savings through intelligent load management.

Posted January 30, 2024

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE) - Lumin, the pioneer and leading provider of responsive energy management solutions, today announced a collaboration with Sunnova Energy International, Inc. (“Sunnova”) (NYSE: NOVA), an adaptive energy services company, to integrate the Lumin Smart Panel and its intelligent energy management platform into the Sunnova Adaptive Home™ offering. The Lumin Smart Panel will be available to tens of thousands of homeowners through Sunnova’s extensive dealer network starting in Q1 2024. The Lumin Smart Panel will also be installed in Sunnova’s new Adaptive Technology Center (ATC), which is comprised of state-of-the-art energy testing and integration technologies, opening in Q1 2024.

The Sunnova Adaptive Home™ combines solar power, battery storage, and smart energy management to make clean energy even more affordable, reliable, and resilient. By integrating the Lumin Smart Panel into the Adaptive Home offering and its energy management software into the Sunnova app, Sunnova provides its customers with superior comfort, insight, and control over their energy usage.

Lumin’s Control What MattersTM load management approach and hardware-agnostic platform provide the Sunnova Adaptive Home™ with a scalable and highly cost-effective tool for advancing home electrification. While typical home battery systems are limited to backing up only a few circuits, Adaptive Homes powered by Lumin Smart panels provide homeowners access to all circuits through responsive load management, enabling and extending whole-home backup. By dynamically managing loads to stay below the customer’s power threshold, the Lumin Smart Panel gives homeowners access to the circuits that matter to them. It enables longer battery life during a power outage and intelligently responds to user preferences and environmental conditions. Features include setting circuit schedules and limits based on time-of-use rates, net metering policies, and demand charges to optimize energy use and save homeowners money on utility bills.

“Lumin’s smart energy management platform is a well-designed combination of performance, compatibility, and affordability that aligns with Sunnova’s commitment to powering energy independence,” said Michael Grasso, Chief Revenue Officer at Sunnova. “Integrating Lumin into our Sunnova Adaptive Home™ offering expands the options for consumers and dealers to ensure energy goals are achieved in the home. We look forward to growing our collaboration to deliver the highest-value home energy experience to our customers.”

Virtual Peaker and Oklahoma Municipal Power Authority Forge Strategic Partnership for Energy-Saving Demand Response Program

Virtual Peaker

This new initiative harnesses Virtual Peaker’s cutting-edge distributed energy platform, empowering OMPA’s 42 municipally owned utilities to offer residential electric customers new energy-saving opportunities.

Posted January 19, 2024

January 18, 2024; Louisville, KY – Virtual Peaker, a cloud-based SaaS company empowering modern utilities with the friendliest distributed energy platform on the planet, announced a strategic partnership with the Oklahoma Municipal Power Authority (OMPA) to launch Turn Down the Watts, a new bring-your-own-device (BYOD) thermostat program to help reduce energy consumption during periods of high demand.

OMPA is a collaborative organization that serves as a wholesale power provider, supporting 42 municipally owned electric utilities in Oklahoma. Its members serve roughly 104,000 residential electric meters. OMPA’s structure and mission are centered around community ownership, joint action, and ensuring the well-being of its member municipalities and their residents.

Through this partnership with Virtual Peaker, OMPA’s 42 municipally owned utilities will be able to offer their residential electric customers the opportunity to enroll and participate in the program and earn incentives designed to support energy-saving practices and reduce overall utility system costs during peak grid demand periods.

Virtual Peaker’s distributed energy resource management system (DERMS) suite, Shift, and its engagement suite, Relay, are central to the program. Shift offers utilities innovative technology with a patented cloud-based real-time control system that automatically adds intelligence to “smart” devices to shave peak load, reduce costs, and execute controlled or behavioral demand response programs. Relay is an automated customer engagement suite that unifies and personalizes the energy customer experience with a connected approach to managing distributed energy resources (DERs).

“We are thrilled to collaborate with the Oklahoma Municipal Power Authority on this innovative program. By providing municipally owned utilities and residential electric customers with the opportunity to save energy through qualifying smart thermostats, we empower them to positively impact both their energy bills and the environment,” said Colin Lamb, Vice President of Delivery, Virtual Peaker.
