Working closely with our utility partners has enabled us to come up with innovative strategies for conservation, energy efficiency and demand response. We know you're always looking to help your customers understand, manage and reduce their energy consumption. We're here to support your activities with compelling and intelligent energy solutions.
ecobee will provide you with a platform that's easy to install and that runs reliably. It's no wonder we've already installed ecobee systems in tens of thousands of homes and businesses across the United States, Canada, Mexico and Australia. The Smart Grid era has just begun. We continue to be on the leading-edge of new technologies, delivering seamless solutions for your customers.
Our scalable CPU architecture, large memory and flash footprint, multiple radios support, dynamic color touch screen and over the air upgrades give you the most robust IHD/PCT platform in market. Plus, you can easily add support for other load control, distributed generation, PHEVs and smart appliances. Our hosted web services platform allows you to easily add new users as conservation and demand response projects grow and requirements change.
Our products are designed with your customers in mind. Our customer-centric design process incorporated the use of user interface experts, focus groups, and usability testing - all of which enhance participation and reduce attrition for utility programs. ecobee users are engaged with their Smart Thermostats, want proof; over 66% of users are running a program, 67% of users access their web portal or smart phone app at least once a week and 96% would recommend ecobee to a friend. These statistics are the signs of great customer experience.
ecobee understands that we are at the beginning of the Smart Grid era and that as the Smart Grid evolves, requirements need to be refined and enhanced. Our hardware platform and Open APIs allow your utility, ecobee and other best-of-breed providers to deliver new applications at a rate and cost which is not achievable with other hardware architectures on the market.
ecobee provides free hosting as part of your solution, ensuring lower long term costs. In addition, as you build out your portfolio with new applications, ecobee's ability to deliver multiple functions without the need for costly hardware upgrades allows you to leverage multiple applications on a single hardware investment. This provides a significantly lower long-term cost of ownership than is possible with single purpose discrete devices.
ecobee is committed to open standards. Our proposal includes support for major smart grid standards including Zigbee SE, WiFi, HAN SRS v2.0 and ClimateTalk.
