OpenADR certification adds value to your products

Fulfill regulatory requirement

It may be required where you operate.

California code Title 24 requires certain appliances in new buildings to be OpenADR compliant. In turn, product manufacturers will need to be OpenADR compliant to continue serving customers in California. Learn more in this blog post.

Increase product sales

Add valuable features and unlock new sales channels.

Utilities incentivize the purchase of devices that can participate in their demand response rates, unlocking more sales. Savvy customers know that they can earn money by participating in demand response and seek products that help them do so.

Add new revenue streams

A source of high margin, repeatable revenue streams.

Product manufacturers that can offer load shifting capacity to aggregators and load serving entities get paid for that service. Some product manufacturers expect to make more money from providing these services than from selling the devices. GridFabric can help you tap into these programs across the country.
