Schneider Electric announced a partnership with KB Home to provide grid-to-plug innovation in KB Home’s new Sundance at Park Circle community in Valley Center, California. The homes will incorporate the Square D Energy Center and connected wiring devices, which will offer greater levels of control, energy efficiency and resiliency for new homebuyers.

The Square D Energy Center enables the convergence, scalability, and optimization of residential distributed energy resources, including utility power, solar power, energy storage, future smart home devices, and generators. The technology lets homeowners take an active role in their home energy management. Energy use can be monitored in real time, usage costs can be compared to utility rates, and power sources can be changed to battery or generator backup sources. More information is here.
