Project Summary:

Whirlpool Corporation, located in Benton Harbor, Michigan, will receive $19 million in funding to develop a smarter energy grid. The U.S. Department of Energy selected Whirlpool Corporation as one of 100 companies to receive federal stimulus funds as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The stimulus funds will be used to support the manufacturing of smart appliances to accelerate the commercialization of residential appliances capable of communicating over a home network with other smart technologies beginning from 2010. These smart appliances will allow consumers to defer or schedule their energy use, which can lower consumer costs and reduce peak electricity demand.

Targeted Benefits:

-Reduced Peak Consumption
