EnerNOC Inc. notes that since June 24, it has dispatched approximately 850 MW of demand response capacity in the western U.S., largely in response to continued heat waves that have threatened grid stability or caused prices to spike throughout the region.

The company says hundreds of commercial, institutional, industrial and agricultural customers in California, Idaho, Utah, and New Mexico were deployed across 14 dispatches, helping to restore system balance and stabilize prices.

"Because buildings retain heat, it takes more energy on day three, four and five of a heat wave to cool the same amount of space. This heat wave has been unrelenting in many areas, taxing the grid and creating an increased need for power," explains Tim Healy, chairman and CEO of EnerNOC.
