An Up-Close Look at EnergySaving Technologies
The 51,000 square-foot Energy Education Center - Irwindale also features cutting-edge interactive displays and demonstrations to show you how you can make better energy decisions and lower your carbon footprint.
The Smart Energy Experience®
Get a first-hand look at this full-scale operational demonstration home of tomorrow, and discover how smart grid technologies can help you use energy more efficiently, while also providing smarter, cleaner, more reliable power.
The Smart Energy Experience® showcases technologies such as home energy management systems, small-scale renewable generation (e.g., solar), and electric vehicle charging infrastructure, and how they connect with our energy-saving incentive programs to create a synergy for increased home efficiency. The demonstration also highlights home communicating devices that can enable you to access daily cost and billing information, as well as near-real-time energy usage data.
In addition, you can see interactive 3-D, life-size residential high-performance building displays with the latest energy-efficient equipment, along with the actual techniques and materials needed to construct high-performance walls and attics.
Whether you are a homeowner or renter looking to remodel or upgrade, or a builder, architect, contractor, or developer working on your next project, the Smart Energy Experience® offers something for everyone.

Heat Pump Water Heater (HOWH) Demand Response Lab
Gain valuable insight into how you can reduce your electricity consumption and help decrease carbon emissions by upgrading your water heater – typically the second-highest source of energy use in residences (after heating and cooling systems).
Water heaters with new energy-saving heat pump technology can be three to four times more efficient than gas water heaters (which lose energy during the venting process) and three times more efficient than their standard electric resistance counterparts – resulting in lower energy use and utility bill savings.
The HPWH Demand Response Lab demonstrates the latest residential and small commercial units, giving you a better understanding of the diversity of brands in the marketplace. In this lab environment, you can learn about the energy consumption and advanced features of HPWH technologies to help you select an appliance that best fits your needs.
