EnerNOC Inc. has announced that its customer network was widely deployed last week to reduce peak demand for electricity across 12 states and Ontario.

The extreme heat wave in the Northeast and mid-Atlantic regions of the U.S., in particular, caused heavy demand for electricity. New York State, for example, set a new record peak demand of 33,956 MW on July 19.

Utilizing EnerNOC's DemandSMART software last week, commercial, institutional, industrial and agricultural customers in Idaho, Illinois, Kentucky, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Utah, Vermont, Virginia and West Virginia participated in 20 separate dispatches to help grid operators and utilities manage peak demand and stabilize prices.

“Thousands of our customers who engage in energy management with our software and make decisions with our applications as their primary tool were actively using DemandSMART last week, monitoring weather and grid conditions, analyzing their real-time data, and managing their energy use,” says Tim Healy, chairman and CEO of EnerNOC.

EnerNOC says it has dispatched almost as many customer sites in 2013 as it did in all of 2012, and last week’s dispatches saw greater customer engagement with DemandSMART than at any time in company history.
