Generate Incremental Net Operating Income
Armada Power will turn your existing dormant fleet of electric tanked water heaters into real time smart appliances capable of providing grid stability. Grid operators have created markets to pay for stability assets and Armada Power will help you enter those markets and capture the value. We have the market know how, the system integrations, and the real time intelligence through Fleetcommander necessary to not only monetize your hot water heaters but also to balance the need between the market and access to hot water.
Active Maintenance Alerting
When Armada Power is added to an electric water heater it provides and entire package of useful data and telemetry. Armada constantly monitors top and bottom tank temperatures as well as power flow and voltage. Using this real time data set Armada is able to detect maintenance issues like failing heating elements, non-functioning thermostats, and tank leaks. We take this information and provide active maintenance alerts to property management and maintenance. In many cases we are able to detect an issue, alert maintenance, and have the issue resolved even before the resident is aware. Active maintenance alerting saves energy, reduces maintenance costs and helps to prevent damage due to continuously leaking tanks.
Carbon Footprint Reduction
Water heaters using an Armada Power Grid Optimizer can eliminate up to 1 ton of carbon emissions per unit per year. By using the electricity already going into an electric water heater to also provide grid stability, Armada is able to reduce the need for other fossil fuel based assets to reserve capacity for grid stability. We are essentially using the electricity in your tank twice, and in doing so, benefiting the environment through reduced carbon emissions.
