Description

Recently, Ford and Microsoft made an announcement about teaming up to help people who charge their vehicles, allowing them to do so when it has the least impact on the grid, and hopefully at a time that saves each user money. Hohm is a Microsoft sponsored program that lets people identify where their power is going and compare that to others around them. At the same time, Hohm provides a way to determine what changes can be made to result in lower energy use and a lower energy bill.

Right now, Hohm works using analysis based on the characteristics of your home that you feed it. In the long term, however, the idea is that all of our devices will be part of a smart home system that gives you consumption patterns, diagnostics, and control at distance.
