Some businesses not plugged in to ‘smart devices’
By Tara Ramsey There’s a “smart” device on the market that could save Charlotte-area businesses money on their utility bills. Unfortunately for Duke Energy commercial customers, there are no definitive plans to run a commercial pilot of the technology, according to Duke spokesman Tim Pettit. Last month, Duke Energy announced it is testing San Jose, Calif.-based Cisco’s Home Energy Management Solution product in Charlotte and Cincinnati and will use feedback from residential customers to develop the smart-grid product further. Cisco’s Network Building Mediator for commercial use has been on the market for a year, said Cisco spokeswoman Jennifer Greeson Dunn. “Cisco does have something like that but we are not currently piloting it,” Pettit said. “The discussions are there, but there are no definitive plans.”
