Tendril Orchestrated Energy, KCP&L partner for smart thermostat program.

Kansas City Power & Light has partnered with Tendril Orchestrated Energy to pilot its leading smart thermostat demand management solution. Tendril's innovative load-shifting technology, which has been selected by some of the largest utilities in the country, will allow KCP&L to add support for ecobee smart thermostats. Tendril's approach allows existing ecobee users within KCP&L's Missouri service territory to reduce energy consumption during peak periods without sacrificing comfort. KCP&L is hoping to benefit from Orchestrated Energy's ability to improve demand reduction and energy efficiency with this pilot program all while keeping customers comfortable. Orchestrated Energy reduces cooling load by an average of 85 percent during demand response events and its daily optimization schedules, when coupled with the energy efficiency savings from the ecobee smart thermostat, reduce HVAC energy usage by up to 24 percent. The initial pilot program runs through September 2018 and targets existing ecobee smart thermostat owners in KCP&L's Missouri territory. Customers who participate will receive a $100 incentive in addition to expected HVAC energy savings.
