in the field
Launched in 2009, Pecan Street’s research network is the only real-world electricity-gas-water test bed on the planet. It includes 1,115 active homes and businesses, 250 solar homes and 65 electric vehicle owners. Each home’s energy generation and use is measured at intervals ranging from one second to one minute — 24/7/365, and can be analyzed down to the circuit level.Learn More
