Energy technology built for today and tomorrow

Copper’s advanced energy technology platform connects wirelessly to electric, gas and water meters to deliver high-resolution data, including sub-minute intervals. Each Copper device is built with capabilities to support both smart AMI and drive-by AMR meters, without the need to replace the device if meters are upgraded. This enables the development of advanced customer programs and demand management, no matter the state of the grid edge of the utilities. This highly responsive residential energy monitoring solution has the ability to advance smart grid demand management far beyond what current technology is capable of.

Wireless meter data, no electrician needed

Meter data is wirelessly collected from the home area network of smart meters and radio frequency of drive-by meters. Our data is collected in real time, instead of the 15-minute interval with smart meters and 30-day delay with drive-by meters. The data is delivered to the consumer’s mobile app and the utility admin portal.

Easy setup for consumers

Copper’s app uses Bluetooth to connect with the energy monitoring device and Wi-Fi to share energy usage data to the cloud. On the consumer’s end, setup is as simple as taking a photo of their meter and entering their Wi-Fi password. From there, Copper uses machine learning to read meter data and develop a unique energy profile for consumers within a few days. Explore Copper’s app to learn more about real-time energy monitoring with smart meters and connected devices.

Built for utility programs and operations

Copper’s utility portal geographically displays live load data with the ability to target messages to consumers based on energy demand, connected distributed energy resources (DERs) and more. With real-time data and randomized control trials, demand reduction results are quickly understood and further savings can be gained from social norming and gamification.

Data-driven energy efficiency

Copper’s technology uses machine learning to interpret electric, gas and water meter data and create personalized recommendations for energy utility consumers. This active feedback loop shifts consumer behavior and accelerates efficiency program performance beyond what’s possible with lightbulb upgrades and smart thermostats. And we’ll help you measure program impact along the way with revenue-grade meter data.
