Description 

This project’s goals are to test optimization of connected thermostats and other loads via voice commands based on TOU rate peak times and customer preferences. Voice interactions related to energy (usage, estimated bills, best times to use appliances, etc.) will undergo evaluation to determine most common and additional desired interactions. The system will use meter based home-by-home M&V methodology to understand energy usage impacts and potentially develop a deemed measure.
