Imagine having a home that, once you leave for work for the day, begins to intelligently manage your appliances and electricity consumption, ensuring that your home is operating efficiently and maximizing its energy use. Your home will know when to run the dishwasher, start the dryer, or begin pre-heating the oven just before you arrive home to cook dinner.
This is the next generation of the solar-powered smart home, and it’s not nearly as far off as many would think. In 2017 consumers can expect to see a major increase in the number of “smart” solar products on the market. The future of solar lies in intelligent energy management, and many solar companies are developing solutions as the industry charges ahead. These products will, ideally, integrate PV, storage, monitoring and control to bring to life the vision of a smart, energy-efficient home where everything works together to function simply, maximize energy efficiency and reduce energy costs for homeowners.
