"What we're seeing is about a savings of about 15 to 20 kilowatts each month, which equates to about $250. Now, they may not seem extraordinary, but if we think about the scaling opportunity there, it's pretty extraordinary," said Jonathan Cohen, acting director of the climate initiatives department for the City of Boulder.
