ecobee, the maker of the Wi-Fi-connected energy management system Si (EMS Si), has entered a new partnership with competitive energy provider Electricity Maine and Thayer Corp. to execute a pilot project as part of the Efficiency Maine Innovation Program.

Efficiency Maine is an independent trust dedicated to promoting energy efficiency. Under the pilot, select small to medium businesses in Maine will be provided with an ecobee EMS Si at no cost. Electricity Maine will select Maine businesses to pilot the project, and Thayer Corp. will install the systems.

According to ecobee, by using its DataRhythm Technology, thermostats will track real-time information related to occupancy schedules, building performance, HVAC system run times and local weather conditions in order to optimize energy efficiency. The selected businesses will also be able to view energy usage data and reports to better understand and manage their organization’s energy consumption.
