Ambient Devices has announced the launch of a pilot program with Ontario-based electric utility Hydro One Networks Inc. The program will see Hydro One delivering Ambient's Energy Joule to select customers to encourage them to take advantage of using electricity when it costs less.

Ambient says its Energy Joule is ZigBee Certified and enables consumers and utilities to make smarter energy consumption choices by transforming wireless data from smart meters into real-time information. Its display monitors and communicates changes in energy prices by glowing a variety of colors: When the device glows red, energy prices are high; yellow, prices are above average; and green, prices are average or below average.

“Hydro One is committed to offering its customers innovative and simple solutions to help them manage their energy consumption. Ambient Devices’ Energy Joule is an exciting energy management tool that will provide our customers with information about their energy consumption in one quick glance,” says George Katsuras, the utility’s manager of business integration.
