Mosaic Power’s Water Heater Efficiency Network (WHEN) connects your electric water heaters through a secure cellular connection with our office in Frederick, Maryland. We install a small load controller and disconnect box on the electric line running to your water heaters without actually touching the water heater itself.
Our load controllers connect wirelessly though a cellular gateway to our control center. We maintain a database of all water heaters in our network and automatically regulate energy use without affecting your hot water needs.
WHEN develops a secure and private individual profile that consists solely of how much and when electricity is used by each water heater. This electricity usage profile tells us how well each water heater’s use matches its size. This signals to us how much we’re able to operate each water heater without impacting the availability of hot water for tenants. WHEN operates through these individual profiles, one water heater at a time, to manage electricity flow based on the needs of both the tenant and the grid, maintaining hot water for tenant use at all times.
WHEN is a frontline tool that can be quickly deployed to connect water heaters in the affordable housing world with a smarter electric grid. Whether you are a grid operator looking to reduce peak demand, a housing authority looking to reduce your carbon footprint, or a property owner looking for new revenue that won’t raise your tenants’ rent, WHEN is what you need today
WHEN does our system operate? Constantly: 24/7, day in and day out, seamlessly and without interruption.
