Techniques for managing one or more buildings, including collecting historical building data, real-time building data, historical exogenous data, and real-time exogenous data and receiving the collected data at an adaptive stochastic controller. The adaptive stochastic controller can generate at least one predicted condition with a predictive model. The adaptive stochastic controller can generate one or more executable recommendations based on at least the predicted conditions and one or more performance measurements corresponding to the executable recommendations.

Devices for and methods of connecting a buried tracer wire to a buried utility pipe are described. The devices and methods include providing a tracer wire connector connected to a clamp, attaching the clamp to a metal portion of the buried utility pipe, and placing an end of the buried tracer wire in the tracer wire connector so that a conductor in the tracer wire is in electrical communication with the buried utility pipe. A sacrificial anode may be conductively attached to the tracer wire connector.

A device for interrupting the flow of electrical power in an electrical distribution system is provided. The device includes a sensor operably coupled to the electrical distribution system. A switching mechanism is coupled to the electrical distribution system, the switching mechanism movable between an open position and a closed position. A controller operably coupled to the sensor and the switching mechanism, the controller having a processor that is responsive to executable computer instructions when executed on the processor incrementing a first counter in a first mode of operation and a second counter in a second mode of operation. Wherein the processor is further responsive to executable computer instructions for switching from the first mode to the second mode in response to a signal from the sensor.
