AT&T exec discusses plans for home energy management service

Verizon has already dipped its toes into the home energy management business, and it looks like AT&T is about to do the same as well. Speaking on a Broadband Breakfast panel in Washington, DC last week, AT&T Executive Director of Public Policy Jeffery Dygert revealed that the company is "in the process of developing" its own home energy management system, which would let users monitor their electricity usage and manage its use more efficiently. That service is said to be a part of the company's broader Digital Life Project, and it will apparently be marketed to both AT&T's wireless and wireline customers, but details remain otherwise light for the time being.
