ComEd® Internally Led Project

This project further tests the use of the 152MHz paging network to provide information to customers without requiring internet access.

Overview

This project represents Phase 2 of the paging network display effort. Phase 1 tested the ability to connect a device to the 152 mhz paging network and receive data from it. A customer roundtable discussion was also conducted to validate the design of using a simple set of indicators on a fridge magnet to relay information to the customer. These activities were associated with the Income Eligible Customer Journey Mapping project described in the Completed Projects section. Phase 2 will deploy prototype devices to 40 homes and test the robustness of the paging signals, device battery life, and participant reactions to better understand how the ComEd Energy Efficiency Program could leverage these devices to help customers save energy.
