Watch the latest episode of our “On the Grid Edge” vodcast series, where we sit down with Natasha Reid, Product Manager for Utility Initiatives at Mysa. The discussion explores how Mysa’s smart thermostats and partnership with AutoGrid are contributing to climate action.
First, Mysa empowers users to manage and reduce energy consumption with features like remote control, scheduling, and geolocation. Second, by participating in demand response programs and virtual power plants, Mysa helps shift energy usage to off-peak times, reducing carbon intensity and stress on the grid. The discussion also highlights the importance of targeting the baseboard electric heating market prevalent in colder regions like Canada and Alaska.
Tune in to learn more about Mysa’s innovative smart home energy management technology and its role in the distributed energy revolution.
