Aclara has entered into a contract with the City of Fort Collins Utilities to deploy an integrated consumer-engagement and demand-response (DR) solution.

The system will share a single software platform, which Aclara says will allow Fort Collins Utilities, located in Colorado, to proactively manage energy usage while capitalizing on conservation, DR programs and in-home technologies.

According to Aclara, this initiative is an important component of Fort Collins' advanced meter project, which comprises approximately 65,000 electric and 34,000 water meters.

As part of the project, Fort Collins Utilities will deploy Aclara's DR management system, powered by Calico.
