Savant, GE Appliances pitch fully connected, net zero homes with EcoBalance

Savant and GE Appliances

GE Appliances and Savant Systems want homeowners to take total control of their home energy with a new, collaborative concept called the GE Appliances EcoBalance System. Homeowners and builders can work with an expert to create an integrated package of energy efficient smart products from GE Appliances and Savant that will work together to achieve net zero energy or lower carbon emissions goals.

Home automation tech company, Savant, has been adding to its Power product line, with solar + storage solutions. If you missed our webinar on Savant’s Whole Home Energy Management product line, check it out on-demand right here.

The GE Appliances EcoBalance System goes one step further, to include energy-efficient appliances and smart home products to pair with energy demand management, solar panels, energy storage solutions and electric vehicle chargers — all of which helps reduce strain on electrical grids and cut long-term energy costs for homeowners. The system will be controlled with an app that can monitor home energy usage, lighting, connected appliances and smart devices.

“We’ve partnered with a company that, like us, puts our customers and users at the heart of everything,” said Kevin Nolan, president and CEO of GE Appliances. “This best-in-class ecosystem we’re building allows people access to the innovation and reliability of two companies with proven track records of performance and being on the leading edge of technological advances.”

Specific products that will be available as part of the GE Appliances EcoBalance System in partnership with Savant are energy-efficient refrigerators, dishwashers, cooking devices, heat pump washer/dryer combo unit, heat pump HVAC system, and heat pump water heaters combined with Savant load management, inverters, batteries and electric vehicle chargers that will work seamlessly with solar panels and generators.

The GE Appliances EcoBalance System in partnership with Savant will be integrated with the appliance brands GE Profile, GE, Monogram, and feature Savant smart lighting and power products. Homeowners will have access to energy efficient appliances available at every price point, as well as Savant’s clean energy generation and storage options.

“We’re excited to join forces with one of the most innovative and trusted appliances brands to tackle rising energy costs and a global energy crisis that continues to challenge countries around the world,” said Bob Madonna, CEO of Savant. “Savant’s intelligent technology gives homeowners the ability to conveniently harness the power of renewable resources and leverage flexible load management to reduce dependence on the grid.”
