California PUC approves demand response contract

Boston, Aug. 25, 2009 – The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) has approved a 110 MW demand response contract between EnerNOC and Southern California Edison (SCE). The contract, which was originally announced in June 2008, is effective through the end of 2012.

EnerNOC will supply SCE with up to 110 MW of demand response capacity in SCE’s 50,000 square-mile service territory.

Capacity under an existing 40 MW contract, which expired concurrently with the CPUC approval of the new contract, will be enrolled under the new contract, resulting in a net addition of 70 MW of contracted capacity between the parties.

During periods of peak demand, SCE will signal EnerNOC to initiate demand response reductions across a network of commercial, institutional, and industrial sites. During a demand response event, EnerNOC monitors performance in real-time from its network operations center to ensure reduction targets are being met.
