Portland, OR, July 22, 2008 — EnergyConnect announced that it is expanding its FlexConnect platform to the New England market. EnergyConnect’s platform is designed to enable large electricity consumers to earn money by voluntarily curtailing power usage in response to high market pricing or regional shortages.
The EnergyConnect FlexConnect platform differs from traditional demand response offerings in that it allows customers to make informed, automated decisions about when to engage in electricity load shifting or curtailment, based both on the company’s operational flexibility and on up-to-the-minute value of demand response on the open market.
