EcoFactor, a provider of cloud-based software services for home energy management (HEM), has announced that NV Energy Inc. has begun mass deployment of the EcoFactor service under the NV Energy mPowered brand.

The integrated demand-side management partnership calls for EcoFactor to deliver both double-digit energy savings to consumers, and a minimum of 20 MW of load reduction in the Las Vegas market during the first phase of deployment. Additional phases are also planned.

The launch of the NV Energy mPowered solution with EcoFactor stems from the success of a pilot program in the Las Vegas metropolitan areas. According to EcoFactor, the company's service delivered an average demand response load reduction of more than 3 kW per home on NV Energy's benchmark measurement and verification days during the pilot.

EcoFactor's cloud-based energy service analyzes a home's specific heating and cooling system information, thermostat settings, personal preferences, indoor temperatures, local weather conditions and several other behavioral factors. Using an Internet-enabled thermostat, the EcoFactor service learns and adapts to these factors, the company adds.

NV Energy, which provides electricity to 2.4 million Nevadans, began rolling out its mPowered solution with EcoFactor to Las Vegas residents in October.
