Eaton offers suite of residential solutions under “Home as a Grid” banner
By Anthony Capkun
April 6, 2021 – Eaton says its Home as a Grid approach combines an intelligent home energy portfolio “with strategic partnerships” to help residential customers integrate, manage and benefit from renewable technologies.
Eaton says its offerings enable builders and installers in the residential sector to safely integrate more renewables, storage and electric vehicle infrastructure. Furthermore, these solutions can serve as DERs (distributed energy resources) to support bi-directional energy flow (i.e. provide power back to the grid).
For example, customers seeking to build/expand their Home as a Grid capability can manage their loads with energy management circuit breakers, Wi-Fi smart devices, solar-ready and smart load centres, cloud architecture and data services.
Eaton also collaborates with smart home entities such as Amazon and Alarm.com, demand-response management system providers and energy aggregators, as well as utilities and DER integrators.
