Naming a new green technology

What would you name a green project that saves electricity throughout a building?

I need some help naming a green project that my team has in the works. Basically, it will be a programmable / automated system that will replace a buildings breaker box. Main functions:

1) Prevent power drainage from various outlets and appliances, I.e. game consoles wasting $1 billion a year when idling, etc.

2) Use off peak hours if possible. I.e. charge cell phone between 12-5 am.

It has a few other abilities but this should give you the idea. I have always loved the name "Kill A Watt" but that is taken.

Any ideas for a good catchy name?
