Oakville, Ontario, January 13, 2010 – EnerNOC, Inc. signed a 25 MW contract expansion with the Ontario Power Authority. This expansion is the result of early success that EnerNOC has achieved in the OPA’s DR 3 demand response program (DR3 Program).
EnerNOC’s initial agreement with the OPA was announced in April 2008 and, since then, the company has enrolled numerous Ontario businesses in the DR3 Program, including VersaCold, Italpasta, Bitumar and others.
“EnerNOC has performed well, delivering over 100 percent of contracted capacity on average in our DR3 Program events in the past year, and we look forward to the continued success of this partnership,” said Cliff Poyton, Manager Business Markets Delivery, Ontario Power Authority.
When dispatched by the OPA, EnerNOC activates its network of commercial, institutional, and industrial energy customers to reduce electricity usage.
EnerNOC monitors each site’s performance in real time from its Network Operations Center (NOC) to ensure that energy reduction targets are achieved.
In return, customers receive regular payments from EnerNOC, as well as free basic access to PowerTrak, EnerNOC’s energy management application that helps customers identify additional energy savings opportunities.
EnerNOC also provides other energy management solutions to Ontario businesses. Its Monitoring-Based Commissioning (MBCx) energy efficiency application helps businesses uncover substantial energy savings through continuous analysis of data captured from building management systems and metering.
