Stopping Brownouts before they start, Nest’s New Plan

One cannot imagine living in Texas without air conditioning and there isn’t much power to go around cooling the residents of the state, especially in the wee hours of hot summer afternoons. Nest has come up with a solution to fix this issue of excessive heating.


People are constantly ignoring the pleas when the energy companies suggests that residents not to cool off during the hours of extreme heat in the day, as the power is not enough to supply everyone’s need.

But recently Les Bowles, who lives not much far from the suburb Dallas-Fort Worth airport, engaged in a part of a possible solution to this issue. As a beta tester for a program called Rush Hour Rewards, used a thermostat with artificial intelligence and an internet connection which helps eases his abode into a zone of thrift and earth-friendliness.

The thermostat is much-touted Nest, being created by a highly reputable all-star team of Silicon Valley designers, engineers and computer scientists, presided by the iPod inventor Tony Fadell. Launched in October 2011, this well established team is sure that people will happily pay $250 for a flashy designed, simple yet powerful interfaced gadget which has the capability to figure out the daily schedule and to adjust temperatures accordingly.

On Earth Day 2013, Nest is announcing what is supposed to be viewed as the second stage of its strategy. Now as the device has invaded thousands of homes with its smart ability to gather data about its customers’ climate and living habits, Nest can now begin using its power in a whole new way. This summer the company is destined to roll out a series of programs called the Nest energy services.
