EnerNOC has managed Connecticut’s participation in ISO New England’s Real-Time Capacity Demand Response Program since 2006. As reported, Connecticut chose to extend its contract with EnerNOC based on the company’s ability to streamline the participation process and maximize revenue for the state through demand response technology and management systems.

By participating in demand response, the state receives quarterly payments from EnerNOC in exchange for agreeing to reduce non-essential electricity usage during periods of peak demand, which helps reduce the risk of blackouts and stabilize energy costs throughout New England.

In addition to payments, the state receives free basic access to PowerTrak, EnerNOC’s energy management software platform, which enables state buildings to identify additional energy efficiency opportunities.

Tim Healy, CEO of EnerNOC, said: “Connecticut was one of the early adopters of demand response, and we’re proud to extend this successful and long-standing partnership. We look forward to continuing to drive value and putting dollars back in the Connecticut budget through demand response and energy efficiency.”

This agreement with the State of Connecticut is the latest in a series of agreements that EnerNOC has signed with local and state governments, including the states of New Mexico, Rhode Island, and Vermont, as well as the cities of Boston, Massachusetts, and Suffolk County, New York, among others.

EnerNOC provides energy solutions including demand response services, energy efficiency, or monitoring-based commissioning services, energy procurement services, and emissions tracking and trading services.
