EnerNOC, Inc., the world’s leading provider of demand response applications and services, today announced that it has extended its contract to implement a demand response program for Salt River Project (SRP) through 2015. Under its existing contract with the Phoenix-based public power utility, EnerNOC manages a network of commercial, institutional, and industrial facilities that agree to reduce electricity usage during peak periods through EnerNOC’s DemandSMART™ demand response application in exchange for year-round payments. This three-year extension of the SRP PowerPartner™ program continues that service agreement, which was originally executed in 2009, and will continue to help Salt River Project provide reliable and affordable electricity in Arizona.
“Over the past several years, EnerNOC has been a strong partner in helping us to achieve our peak management goals,” said Debbie Kimberly, SRP Director of Customer Programs and Marketing. “They have maintained a strong track record for customer satisfaction, as well as performance, and our customers value their user-friendly technology. We are excited to continue this relationship to ensure that demand response remains easy and rewarding for participating customers, while also a reliable resource for us to manage.”
“Businesses and organizations throughout SRP’s service territory have taken advantage of the bottom-line benefits that demand response presents. We’re excited to continue this relationship so that they can continue to be rewarded for smart energy management practices,” said EnerNOC Chairman and CEO Tim Healy. “Our work with SRP has helped to manage peak load when the Southwest grid is strained, keeping the lights on—and the A/C working—at homes and businesses throughout the region.”
To date, EnerNOC has enabled a broad variety of businesses to participate in demand response in SRP’s service territory, including commercial property, data centers, hospitals, and manufacturing sites. Customers receive smart metering and control equipment free of charge, as well as real-time visibility into their energy usage through EnerNOC’s DemandSMART application. EnerNOC’s automated demand response solutions can respond to SRP’s calls for load reductions within minutes.
EnerNOC operates demand response programs in deregulated markets throughout the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand and implements exclusive demand response programs with utilities such as the Tennessee Valley Authority, Tucson Electric Power, Idaho Power, Public Service Company of New Mexico, and Xcel Energy.
