Plaid

Plaid is a licensed software solution that allows IoT products of all types to add load shifting capabilities, by translating load shifting protocols into their existing APIs.

Companies that implement Plaid get a certified OpenADR 2.0b Virtual End Node (VEN) as though they built it from scratch.

Load Shifting capabilities add value to connected products

Fulfill regulatory requirement

It may be required where you operate.

California code Title 24 requires 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.

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

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 they from selling the devices. GridFabric can help you tap into these programs across the country.
