Google testing energy-saving thermostats, says report

Google's intentions of invading the home do not just involve TVs. According to The Information, the technology giant is currently testing Internet-connected home thermostats to let users monitor and control energy usage.

Sources said that the project is dubbed "EnergySense," and that the company Ecobee will supply the thermostats to Google. Google is also rumored to be enlisting people to work as "Trusted Testers" in St. Louis, Missouri, where the program might be launched.

Google's obsession with home energy use is deep. A couple of years ago, the company launched a free energy monitoring tool called Google PowerMeter to raise awareness about the importance of tracking energy use.

It claimed that up to 15 percent of energy use can be reduced just by monitoring usage in homes. Unfortunately, the tool was closed in September of 2011 because its efforts have not scaled as quickly as Google wanted to.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
