Hub Controls Commits to US Manufacturing and Job Opportunity Creation in Central New York as they drive for energy equity and reduced carbon emissions in New York State and across the U.S

Binghamton, New York, April 4, 2024 — Hub Controls, the developer and provider of an award-winning automated personal energy management system, announced they have contracted with Four Square/TRE to manufacture a high-quality, affordable smart thermostat.

Easy to install and manage, the Hub Lite device is unlike any other connected thermostat in the market. It is the latest in the portfolio of intelligent solutions powered by HubBrain™.

HubPro™ original is a standard wall-placed thermostat installed in tens of thousands of locations over the past few years, primarily in Ireland, where the product was conceived and manufactured with great success.

HubLite™ is the newest version and comes half a year after Hub Controls set up global operations in the US with a wholesale and channel distribution strategy.

HubRelay™ is in the Hub Controls lab and is a software-first, cloud-controlled solution that lives behind any existing thermostat, allowing users to connect directly to HubBrain.

“We are thrilled to announce the availability of this easy to sell, install and manage energy management system and look forward to continuing to work with our partners to bring this into homes, including public housing agencies, building owners and property managers, real estate developers working on affordable housing, and more,” said Christina Domecq, Managing Director, Hub Controls.

“Hub Controls sees a significant opportunity in the US market, including driving savings for low- and middle-income multifamily housing where there has been a lack of focus on technological updates to HVAC systems and where savings on energy costs are most significant to consumers, both tenants and landlords,” Domecq added.

Hub Controls relocated from Ireland to Binghamton, NY in 2023. Before that, Hub Controls has worked to save Irish homeowners money by decreasing the usage of costly energy to heat and cool their homes.

Hub Controls has developed the HUB Lite to focus on the specific needs of the US market. This product has been designed and manufactured and will be assembled in New York State.

The mission of Hub Controls is to address inequities in access to affordable energy, and to save money and reduce energy usage, especially for low-income communities. The company is partnering with energy providers and organizations to close the gap while, in turn, reducing carbon emissions on the path to Net Zero by 2050 or sooner.

Hub Controls has partnered/ worked with Conklin, NY-based Four Square/TRE to design this product, given their knowledge, equipment and facilities to manufacture and assemble the HUB Lite in Central New York.

“It is an honor to be part of this important initiative,” said Jake Haddock at Four Square/TRE. “Bringing cost-effective climate control solutions to consumers in the U.S. that reduce carbon emissions and deliver valuable data to energy providers is a meaningful undertaking. We all win when energy is more accessible to all, more affordable for all, and more efficiently delivered and managed by providers.”
