Conshohocken, Pa., April 19, 2011 — Viridity Energy entered into a master agreement with the Defense Logistics Agency Energy to pursue load curtailment at federal and military facilities across the U.S.
By selling planned electric load reductions at a premium into the energy markets, Viridity Energy plans to help defense bases and federal facilities recognize savings from new energy conservation strategies.
The federal government is the largest consumer of electricity in the U.S. DLA Energy’s mission is to provide Department of Defense and other government agencies with comprehensive energy solutions in the most effective and efficient manner possible.
DLA Energy’s demand response program works to assist customers in understanding demand response, providing them an easier means to enter into DR programs.
There are currently over 50 DLA Energy sponsored installations as part of the existing demand response program across the U.S. The projects provide a combined capacity of 160 MW, representing $2.4 million in credits that have been generated through load curtailment.
