Our utility customers are focused on:

Reducing Costs

 Reducing peak costs as new sources of load (such as electric vehicles) and limited supply strain the traditional electricity system.

Customer Engagement

Creating a customer-engagement framework around in-home smart devices and residential energy use 
as energy-savvy customers 
demand more of their utilities.

Grid Modernization

Managing a more distributed grid, balancing supply and demand with rooftop solar, batteries, and a more complex load curve.

See What People Are Saying

"With our ability to make household loads grid-ready, combined with Virtual Peaker’s cloud-based residential energy demand response platform, we are providing our utility customers the intelligent power management solutions needed for an increasingly electrified world."

Andrew Bouthilet VP, Offer Management and Marketing Eaton

"Virtual Peaker is probably one step ahead most of the time of what utilities are asking them to do, which means that when we're at that stage, they'll already have it in their backlog."

Graham Turk Innovation Strategist Green Mountain Power

"They were very upfront about what they're delivering now, what they want to deliver in the future, and then what is not in the roadmap. And that’s key, that transparency."
