BOSTON, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 06/10/2009 -- Saving money while benefiting the electric grid just became easier for Green Mountain Power customers. EnerNOC, Inc. (NASDAQ: ENOC), a leading developer and provider of clean and intelligent energy solutions, today announced that it has signed a partnership agreement with Green Mountain Power, an electric utility that transmits, distributes and sells electricity in the State of Vermont in a service territory with approximately one quarter of Vermont's population. Under the terms of the partnership, customers currently enrolled in Green Mountain Power's demand response program will be rolled into EnerNOC's demand response network. In addition, Green Mountain Power and EnerNOC will work together to actively recruit additional commercial, institutional, and industrial customers into the program. Green Mountain Power selected EnerNOC as its preferred demand response partner in order to maximize its customers' revenue opportunities and ensure that they receive the highest levels of service and support.
"Our customers will benefit greatly from our new partnership with EnerNOC," said Mary Powell, president and chief executive officer of Green Mountain Power. "The technical expertise that EnerNOC offers will enable our customers to take full advantage of demand response opportunities, thus saving them money."
Demand response is a program where customers reduce their electric usage in response to high wholesale prices or system reliability events. The program is available to customers who can quickly reduce at least 100 kilowatts of electric usage when notified of an event. By lowering energy usage, customers help decrease demand on the system, which saves costs for all customers in the region. Demand response programs offer these customers a financial incentive in exchange for their participation.
"We're very excited to work with Green Mountain Power and its customers," said Gregg Dixon, Senior Vice President of Sales and Business Development at EnerNOC. "EnerNOC's extensive experience working with businesses throughout New England -- including those in industries that are the lifeblood of the Vermont economy, such as lumber, food-processing, and hospitality -- enables us to develop customized energy reduction strategies, deliver reliable demand response results, and provide an overall increase in energy awareness for end-use customers."
