    Bulb, on the other hand, wants to help residential and commercial property owners to have bigger control of their consumption, as well as to help switch to renewable sources.

    Amit Gudha and Hayden Wood started their company following their work in the conventional energy industry. They saw that prices were very high and the services were bad. People also told them that they intended to purchase renewable energy but could not due to the price. So, they launched Bulb to give people a different choice.

    Bulb is also considering the smart meters’ potential, as these meters are going to provide the customers with more accurate energy consumption measurements.

    Gudka said that this data is going to let them place tariffs with ranging rates for various times in the day, which are fitted to the actual energy use in homes. The data gathered from these meters, he added, is going to let homes take part in ‘demand response’ that incentivizes the customers to minimize usage peak demand times for the grid.
