After a successful initial pilot, we are extending our partnership with Central Electric Power Cooperative Inc. (CEPCI) of South Carolina. Headquartered in Columbia, SC, the 20 distribution cooperatives comprising CEPCI provide electricity to approximately one third of the entire state of South Carolina.
Our project is expansion is providing the energy flexibility needed to allow cooperative utility members to save money on their electric bills and reduce the need to build additional expensive grid infrastructure. We are first deploying our innovative Mello® smart thermostat for water heaters with the opportunity to expand into additional device types in the future. Our Nimble® phone app will be set up to support several rate and program structures used by CEPCI co-ops to enable their members to benefit from flexibility in different ways.
