March 29, 2016
BALTIMORE and NEWTON, Mass. (March 29, 2016) — Constellation and technology company Powerhouse Dynamics have launched a program that will enable multi-site businesses, such as retailers and restaurants, to implement enterprise-level, automated energy management capabilities without incurring a large, upfront capital expense or compromising business operations.
Through Constellation’s Efficiency Made Easy (EME) program, commercial customers in competitive energy markets can include the cost of Powerhouse Dynamics’SiteSage® energy and asset management platform as part of their monthly energy bills under a Constellation energy supply agreement. SiteSage enables control, monitoring, and real-time analytics of individual pieces of equipment, enabling centralized management of a dispersed portfolio of locations from a mobile device or browser.
