Energate Inc. says Canadian utility Newmarket-Tay Power Distribution is deploying Energate's Foundation smart thermostats and home energy gateway in customers' homes.

These demand response and home energy management solutions will be added to end points that use Sensus' open-standards-based FlexNet utility communication network with ZigBee-enabled meters. The province of Ontario has deployed over five million smart meters to coincide with a new time-of-use pricing program, as well as rolled out the peaksaver PLUS direct load control program.

Newmarket-Tay Power Distribution is the first local distribution company in Ontario to deploy demand response technology that communicates over the advanced metering infrastructure network utilizing Energate's Consumer-Connected Demand Response (CCDR) solution platform. Newmarket consumers will receive smart thermostats that allows them to proactively manage their energy usage in relation to time-of-use rates, and they will also attain access to an enhanced consumer portal and mobile apps that allow them to remotely monitor real-time energy consumption and control loads in their homes.

Following the initial deployment, Energate anticipates the program to expand to additional homes over the next two years.
