How You Save Money

Reduce monthly utility bills

Reduce utility bills

Make sure your appliances are on ONLY when they need to be on. We optimize HVAC settings, reduce lighting waste, create customized recommendations, and more. Average Savings Per Month: $200-600 per store.

Detect breaking or broken equipment

Detect breaking equipment

We detect malfunctioning appliances before they break - burned out fryer elements, broken HVACS, malfunctioning freezers, and other major pieces of equipment. You pay for a minor repair instead of a major repair or inventory loss. Average Savings Per Month: $200-500 per store.

The Company Behind This Revolution

Geniuses Analyzing Your Data

Geniuses Analyzing Your Data: The History of PlotWatt

PlotWatt was started by a rocket scientist (literally) and an ivy league math professor (literally) who wanted to answer the question, "what makes energy bills so high?" They wrote algorithms to pick apart the usage of individual appliances from meter readings alone, and they recruited a team of geniuses (engineering and physics PhDs from Stanford, MIT, Caltech, and more) to expand the data analysis magic of PlotWatt.

Using this product, the team cut their own energy bills in half, and they quickly helped their customers in quick service restaurant management save thousands of dollars a year.

"I sleep better at night knowing I have a bunch of rocket scientists looking after my store." - Ric Richards, Restaurant Franchisee

How We Do It

"You can observe a lot by just watching." – Yogi Berra

At PlotWatt, we see your store with new eyes. Our algorithms see a treasure trove of data in your restaurant’s main energy signal. We see patterns, inefficiencies, looming equipment catastrophes, and threats to your guest experience. (Yes, it’s kind of like the Matrix.) We don’t need to monitor each appliance; our smart software reads your signal and immediately sees it all.

It sounds complex but it’s actually pretty simple. Each appliance creates a unique signature in the way that it uses energy. We call this a “Watt Print.” Our software learns your restaurant’s specific watt prints and, once we set it up, it’s always watching your store.

We translate everything we see into a friendly, actionable message sent directly to store managers. In 1-2 minutes a day, store managers know EXACTLY what to do today to reduce energy use, catch breaking appliances, and ward off threats to the guest experience.

The bottom line: We provide focused insights to change behavior and grow your bottom line.

An Award Winning Brand

PlotWatt is a game changer in energy management.

When GE threw out the challenge of how to improve the future of energy, over 850 companies responded. That year, GE’s prestigious Ecomagination Award was presented to PlotWatt.

A few months later, the White House hosted Datapalooza, an event designed to spotlight entrepreneurs and innovations that advance a secure, clean energy future. PlotWatt founder, Luke Fishback was invited to participate as a keynote speaker at this important event.

It's a new way of thinking. PlotWatt is smart, efficient, good for the earth, and it saves money year after year.
