This week, Alex Bazhinov joins us from Charlottesville, VA, where he is founder and CEO of Lumin. Lumin’s Smart Panel is currently adopted by hundreds of solar and energy storage installers, providing a system for retrofitting an existing circuit breaker panel to perform energy data analysis and circuit control. Data on connected appliances and systems is gathered and analyzed to assist homeowners in better understanding their home energy habits. An inventor and entrepreneur, Alex had the idea for Lumin while tending to his first start-up, DreamPower, which he founded at the University of Virginia’s iLab while earning his graduate degree at UVA’s Darden School of Business. Lumin recently announced Lumin Edge, which is a new modular smart energy system and smartphone application that gives homeowners the flexibility to manage, monitor, and optimize their home energy usage.
