e-Radio Inc. (ERI) is driven by a relentless focus on delivering high quality products and devices that seamlessly integrate into smart grid communications networks to facilitate real-time demand response, frequency regulation, grid scale non battery storage, renewable generation integration, emergency notification and advisory and customer relations management. Our systems are compliant with international communications standards and are designed for maximum efficiency and economy, robust reliability, security and flexibility, while maintaining consumer privacy.
ERI operates an expanding secure wireless communications platform based on globally standardized FM-RDS technology that leverages a network of existing FCC licensed FM radio broadcasters. These FM radio networks reach 99.5% of the North American population and require comparably little effort to add large areas of geographic coverage.
We design and manufacture receiver modules that are integrated into a variety of smart grid devices, such as a programmable communicating thermostat (PCT) and various smart appliances such as electric water heaters, air conditioners, refrigerators and including electric (EV) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV). Our products are focused on residential and small commercial customer demand management and load shifting programs by providing advisory pricing and control information.
ERI's technology has been tested and validated through utility company pilot programs, government and university research and with various device partners. International standards development with ISO, ANSI and CEA is an important part of the work ERI does to maximize compatibility with other devices and compliance with regulations.
