JOB CATEGORY

Why we exist:

At Parity, our purpose is to make urban living sustainable by providing an easy service to manage waste energy and save money for our customers. Parity provides a cloud-based building automation system that adapts a building’s energy use to the demands of its residents. The net result? Money saved and CO2 emissions reduced.

Buildings in our beautiful cities where we live and work are producing 40% of the CO2 going into our atmosphere contributing to global warming. We need to HEAT, VENT, AIR CONDITION our buildings 24/7. Most of the energy consumed in a building is for our comfort and 50% of it is wasted. This is because buildings have little to no technology to control this.

Who we are:

Par·i·ty (/ˈperədē/noun)
The state or condition of being equal, synonyms: balanced, equality, equivalence, uniformity, sameness, consistency, congruity, congruence, levelness, unity, coequality, parallelism, evenness "Parity of two things being perfectly matched with no waste"

Parity Inc. is a software service to eliminate energy waste from buildings!! Using AI, Parity Inc. is able to predict the amount of energy needed ahead of time to operate a building to meet its residents HVAC needs and adapt the building's systems and machinery.
