GE Brillion Home Energy Systems Now Available At Sears

SOURCE: General Electric (GE)


Tracking and reducing home energy consumption is all the rage. As individuals look for ways to use energy more wisely, manufacturers have discovered a market for new technologies that can make conserving energy easy and maybe even a little bit fun.

Smart meters, intuitive thermostats, and a plethora of energy tracking mobile apps have appeared on the market. Those with true potential to help you reign your energy-wasting habits are often made by companies who've taken a more thoughtful approach. Back in 2010, EarthTechling reported that GE was diving into the home energy management market with the Brillion line of products. Now, the company has announced that Sears will be the first retailer to offer the Brillion line, giving customers the ability to control over 60 percent of their home’s energy usage remotely.

The entire Brillion system revolves around the Nucleus, a device designed to gather energy use data from your home's existing smart network, i.e. smart meter, smart appliances, etc. The Nucleus translates near real-time energy consumption into estimated energy dollars spent, based on standard or variable time-of-use pricing structures, and operates in conjunction with smart energy programs provided by your local electricity company. Additionally, everything can be tracked and controlled by the GE Nucleus iPhone app.
