INEVITABLY, when discussions turn to energy use for home or business, the “bottom line” becomes a favourite theme. Yes, most people want to make wise eco-decisions in this day and age and that includes responsible green energy solutions – but they also usually ask one question as well: “What’s it going to cost?”
Just Energy, a leading supplier of natural gas, electricity and green energy solutions with almost two million customers across North America, has several programs that cater to cost and environmentally-conscious consumers that also provide more bang for the buck. They include:
- SmartStat: more than a thermostat, it delivers quality, innovation and great features you would expect from a high tech thermostat
- Customized rate plans with green energy options for businesses
- MyTime™ Electricity: where users get one steady rate throughout the day. That means never paying top-dollar for electricity
With MyTime™ Electricity, there are compelling reasons to choose this service. For one thing, you’ll pay less and avoid the hassle and confusion of time-of-use pricing offered elsewhere. Moreover, you won’t have to schedule your life around your electricity rates – you can live life on your own schedule without paying a premium. Instead of fluctuating costs based on the time of day, you’ll always pay the same rate and enjoy the same service and delivery as always. And enrolment is only a click away with simple, easy-to-follow instructions.|
A complementary residential product would definitely be the Wi-Fi-enabled SmartStat – which may be high-tech, but you don’t need to be a rocket scientist to use one. The thermostat, which has cool mobile apps, an easy web portal, and live weather reports among a list of other features, takes the frustration out of programming with a simple touch screen and easy to follow step-by-step instructions.
“SmartStat is the latest in smart thermostat technology that enables homeowners to control their thermostat remotely from a tablet, computer, iPhone or other smart phone device” says Al Shulman, Vice-President of marketing for Just Energy. “A secure web portal and simple navigation makes it easy to use and program at the homeowner’s convenience, ultimately helping them control their costs by helping them control their energy use.”
Features include calculated algorithms that take into account elements such as weather, size of home, number of occupants and type of HVAC system to maximize energy efficiency. It can also alert you of changes in the performance of your heating and cooling systems to help you catch small problems before they become large ones.
Heating and cooling comprises over 50 per cent of the average home’s energy use, so cutting back the amount of energy you use can translate into significant cost savings. And that’s without sacrificing comfort. Of all Just Energy’ SmartSmat customers, 80 % are running the recommended program resulting in more efficent energy use.
It’s win-win: you can reduce both your energy costs and your impact on the environment.
