Smart and Sustainable home of the Future

Household emissions are a major contributory factor for the climate change.  Over 1/3 of global emissions can be attributed to energy consumption in homes.  Aspects to consider are government regulations, utilities, integrations of battery and solar, load management, “virtual software defined ampacity size load centers", and service equipment upgrades. Schneider Electric is leading the way with the award-winning Energy Center smart electrical panel that serves as the central hub of the smart home energy ecosystem and makes adding renewable energy fast and easy.


Cathy Le is the Offer Architect in Alternate Energy and Connected System responsible for the Energy Center Smart Panel with Wiser Energy Management.  She brings 15 years of experience in the solar industry as the Director of Engineering and Product Development.  In 2009, she was the 2nd woman in the state to receive the NABCEP certification which is the most widely recognized solar achievement credential in the U.S.  Some of her most notable projects are the VTA public transportation solar carport and solar hangers at South Lake Tahoe Airport.

Cathy holds an Optical Science and Engineering degree from U.C. Davis and an MBA from Santa Clara University. She is based in Bay Area California.
