Source Power & Gas LLC (SPG), a Texas-based independent retail energy provider, has announced Phase 1 of its smart grid strategy and engagement with DR2 LLC, a software solutions provider to the utility industry, and its DR-MassMarket solution.

In this first phase, SPG says select residential and small commercial customers will participate in a pilot program to "explore the attributes of the [Electric Reliability Council of Texas’s (ERCOT)] smart grid." Once testing is complete, SPG will implement demand response programs across its customer base. The first phase of SPG's smart grid solution integrates Wi-Fi thermostats and smart meter data.

“With [DR2’s] products and services, we will be able to provide our customers with their usage and consumption patterns via email, as well as monitor their usage and take steps to change consumption patterns that will result in lower electricity usage and thus lower rates, not to mention help the grid when demand peaks,” comments John Werner, SPG president.
