Enlighted’s Plug Load Controller Honored as Innovation in Sustainability

Sunnyvale, Calif. — November 16, 2015 Enlighted, Inc. announced today that its new Plug Load Controller, launched in September 2015, has been named a leading innovation to achieve sustainable building solutions as a recipient of one of Architectural Product’s Product Innovation Awards (PIAs). The PIAs determine and honor innovation in the development and refinement of buildings-related products.

AP-PIA15“Building on the success of last year’s program, our fifth edition of the awards proves commercial building manufacturers are committed to, and are working arduously toward, delivering more sustainable products, as well as products that deliver better performance, life and affordability,” said Jim Crockett, Editorial Director, Architectural Products.

Enlighted’s Plug Load Controller is designed to significantly reduce unnecessary outlet energy use through intelligent control. It is easily configurable with the Enlighted Energy Manager to provide advanced data on outlet energy consumption, carbon reduction, energy and financial savings, and helps achieve Title 24 compliance in California.

“As companies are continuing to place more emphasis on sustainability as part of corporate goals, decision-makers are looking for solutions that can significantly impact energy reduction,” said Neeraj Purandare, VP Product Management, Enlighted. “We’re happy to provide an innovative solution that addresses the often overlooked issue of outlet energy usage, which can attribute for 30 to 50 percent of U.S. commercial building energy consumption.”
