Aztech In-Home Display and Optio™ Topics

Aztech In-Home Display

If you have a great Aztech conservation story, we’d like to hear from you!

The design of the Aztech In-Home Display LCD screen and Light Arc really draw customers’ attention.-  Ryan Hamid, Director, Conservation Programs & Development, Ecofitt
In the six weeks since we started using our Aztech In-Home Display we have become very aware of our electricity usage. When you can see the amount of electricity being used in real time you can do something about it.- Chuck, PG&E Customer
It’s going to facilitate better pool pump and chlorination system management in the summer so that we conserve electricity and reduce the amount of electricity we are using during more expensive rate periods.- Westario Power Inc. customer
It's an awesome tool!-  San Diego Gas & Electric customer
The instantaneous (Quick Read) feature is the main reason I bought the IHD. We are going to benefit from being aware of what each electrical appliance consumes, and knowing when to shift our usage to a time of day when the rates are lower. Both of these things will help us lower our electrical bill. If you want to get a handle on you electrical usage the Aztech give you the information to do so.- Chuck, PG&E customer
My name is Elijah, one of my chores is the dishwasher. I don't start the dishwasher unless the light arc is green.- 11 yr. old Peterborough Utilities customer
We have only had our Aztech IHD for two weeks and it’s already enabling our conservation efforts. The ability of this unit to run on battery and wireless for Quick Reads is helping us determine how much power our appliances and electrical household equipment is drawing. We found out that our 12 year old refrigerator was running continuously and has to be replaced.- Westario Power Inc. customer
...It's very simple to use, and technology and I don't really get along, and I could install it fine. It tells you high-peak time or off-peak time, so if I am going to do something, I am going to wait the extra hour so that it's off-peak, so that I don't pay as much as I could be paying.-  Peterborough Utilities customer
Customers have access to important information, including the 24 hour and 30 day screens without having to go online. They don’t need to change the pricing twice a year because it is done automatically, and we can send messages to them via the IHD.-  Rene Beaulne, Manager, Hydro 2000 Inc.
Now that customers are on Time of Use rates, the true value of the information being presented is being realized - customers are embracing the Aztech Technology.- David Whitehouse, Director of Customer/Corporate Services and the Conservation Officer, Peterborough Utilities
