An unmissable opportunity!

In Brazil there are 50 million 5 kW electric (instant) showers, representing an installed load of 250 GW.

The available opportunity, ready to be seized, is to stimulate the use of these showers off-peak.

Every 10 GW transferred from peak to off-peak avoids USD 10 billion of CAPEX investments enabling the reduction of costs for the whole society.

If you want to know how to make this transfer happen, get in touch. I have developed solutions that can be implemented in the short term and for a small fraction of the benefits they will generate.
