EnerNOC Inc. says Arizona-based utility Tuscon Electric Power (TEP) has extended and expanded its EnerNOC Demand Resource contract for up to 45 MW of demand response capacity through 2020.

According to EnerNOC, the new terms of the contract will help TEP improve system operations and customer benefits, as well as reach the goals of Arizona's energy efficiency standard, which requires utilities to increase energy savings through customer-funded efficiency programs until their cumulative usage reaches 22% by 2020.

EnerNOC Demand Resource is a capacity-based agreement that provides utilities with load reduction on a turnkey, fully outsourced basis, EnerNOC explains. CEO Tim Healy says the agreement with TEP “exemplifies how demand response can be tailored to fit the needs of different utilities.”

The two companies have been partners since 2010 to implement a demand response program for the commercial and industrial customers of TEP, which provides power to 413,000 in the Tucson metropolitan area.
