HomePlug Command & Control (HPCC): A Green Energy Enabler

In simple terms, HPCC creates a command and control network in the home using the existing power lines as a means of communication (PLC). This not only offers the advantages discussed here to utility providers but also allows consumers the ability to control their home, remotely. HPCC's energy efficient applications, such as networking thermostats in homes and demand control, remote management of high power appliances, etc. ensure a more environmentally friendly future.

The result is a more efficient use of resources as well as consumer friendly incentives such as low tariff periods, competitive pricing, more accurate billing, etc.
