Building owners who can't afford legacy building automation systems (at a starting price of $10,000) currently have just one real solution: the programmable thermostat.

Instead of costly hardware devices at the sites and specialist ...more »

The amount of points earned per action should reflect the amount of energy saved. This would also provide a big picture to consumers that what is a big saving method and what ...more »
