“Estamos dando pasos en forma deliberada para alentar e impulsar a nuestros clientes residenciales y comerciales a ahorrar dinero y evitar el desperdicio en el consumo,” afirmó Michael Grasso, director de comercialización de TXU Energy. "Mientras algunos clientes perciben los beneficios individuales de ahorrar dinero, otros claramente reconocen el impacto que sus esfuerzos personales de conservación tienen para Texas y para la confiabilidad de la principal rejilla eléctrica del estado.”

Productos

  • Brighten® iThermostat – Los clientes residenciales y comerciales que usan esta solución para ahorros de energía de TXU Energy pueden controlar un termostato inteligente completamente integrado en su hogar o en forma remota, a través de Internet o a través de aplicaciones gratuitas para teléfonos inteligentes, que les permite reducir el consumo y el gasto en electricidad, incluso cuando no están en su hogar. Los clientes residenciales que tienen iThermostats también participan en un programa de conservación que ofrece TXU Energy. El programa permite que decenas de miles de clientes de TXU Energy participen en eventos de respuesta a picos de demanda en todo el estado, los cuales desactivan temporalmente las unidades de aire acondicionado. Cuando ERCOT advirtió que los niveles de demanda podían generar cortes de energía durante el verano de 2011, nosotros llevamos a cabo 15 eventos de ciclismo diferentes, cada uno de los cuales redujo entre 30 y 45 megavatios de demanda de la rejilla.

TXU Energy también juega un papel importante para conservar y evitar el desperdicio en el consumo. Entre otras cosas:

  • El edificio de las oficinas centrales de la compañía en Irving cuenta con la certificación LEED® Silver del U.S. Green Building Council® (Consejo de edificios verdes) de los Estados Unidos y utiliza energía renovable.
  • Las luces de las oficinas están controladas por sensores de movimiento.
  • Las luces del edificio se atenúan durante los períodos de picos de demanda.
