Australian energy retailer Mojo Power has partnered with carbonTRACK to deliver smart energy management tools for its customers.
CarbonTrack will deploy its smart gateways to enable customers of Mojo Power to remotely monitor and control electricity use.
The project allows smart home control such as switching schedules and customisable alerts through a smartphone.
When energy demand is high on the grid, the technology will send a signal to consumer households, a capability that will enable automatic turning off of appliances to avoid intense energy use.
The technology is expected to help customers to lower costs, as well as enabling Mojo to provide a better service through Virtual Power Plant (VPP) functionality.
Mojo Power executive director commercial Adam MacDonald said the partnership with carbonTRACK delivered on Mojo’s commitment to give its customers access and control of transparently priced and affordable energy. “This is an exciting move for Mojo Power in building out our offerings of smart tools for residential and business customers.
“We want our customers to enjoy simple plans, clear and accurate bills, and access their electricity usage data if they choose to. carbonTRACK provides us with smart tools that give our customers visibility to track and automatically manage their electricity usage.”
The energy retailer will also be able to offer peak shaving and storage integration using technology.
