Special Offer: Free energy meters for qualified California and New York buildings

Now you can get Verdigris energy monitoring equipment for free when you sign up for the Verdigris Energy Network.

Good for the grid, good for you

Demands on the grid are growing, and utility companies in California and New York increasingly need additional energy storage and peak capacity--and they are willing to pay you for it.

When your buildings join the Verdigris Energy Network, they become part of a virtual power plant (VPP) working to help reduce the grid’s dependence on fossil fuels.

It’s an easy way to do something good for the planet, and it won’t cost you anything.

Q: Who is eligible to enroll in the Verdigris Energy Network?
A: The program is initially available to buildings in California and New York with a building management system (BMS). Sign up for the wait list to be notified as we expand to additional areas.

Q: What exactly am I signing up for when I join the waitlist?
A: By submitting the form, you are joining the early access waitlist for the Verdigris Energy Network. We will follow up to confirm your building’s eligibility and participation. Once confirmed, we will install Verdigris energy meters at no cost to you, and the revenue collected from demand response payments over time will be used to finance the cost of the equipment and installation.

Q: Are there other hidden costs, such as costs to install the equipment?
A: No, the offer includes all the necessary hardware and installation. For a typical 100,000 square foot building, this is more than $20,000 in value at no cost to you.

Q: Am I able to unenroll in the program?
A: Yes, you can stop participating in the Verdigris Energy Network at any time.

Q: How does Verdigris ensure that my critical equipment is not impacted? Or that my tenant/guest comfort is not impacted?
A: When there is a demand event and the utility needs capacity, Verdigris will automatically adjust your building’s electricity usage. At the time the system is installed, we will work with you to set thresholds for key equipment and other variables, to ensure that critical equipment operations and the comfort of building occupants are not compromised.

Q: Will participation in this program impact my electric bill?
A: Yes, participation in the Verdigris Energy Network is likely to reduce your electric bill. Additional energy savings can be achieved by activating Adaptive Automation to continuously optimize your HVAC system. Customers who activate Adaptive Automation typically see savings of $0.10-$0.30 per square foot.

Q: If demand response payments from the utility company go down or are lower than expected, will I have to pay to cover the cost of the equipment?
A: There is no risk to you. If payments from the utility company are lower than expected, Verdigris bears the risk. If payments from the utility company are higher and the equipment is paid off sooner than expected, you take title of all equipment and keep all future demand response revenue.

Q: I don’t get it. How can I sell energy back to the grid that I never even had or used?
A: When stress on the grid is high, the utility can either increase the supply of electricity (often turning to harmful fossil fuel sources), or the utility can pay to reduce the demand for electricity. Demand response programs are paying you to not use electricity during certain time periods, and Verdigris’ advantage is our ability to make those adjustments automatically without compromising building operations.
