Comverge Inc. has announced that its partner Florida-based Gulf Power Co. has enrolled 10,000 participants in the utility's automated dynamic pricing program. According to Comverge, Gulf Power's Energy Select program gives customers greater control over their energy usage by allowing them to automate the control of high-energy-use appliances to automatically respond to pricing tiers and dynamic price signals.

To operate the program, Gulf Power uses the Comverge IntelliSOURCE demand response management system and Comverge's portfolio of intelligent energy management devices. IntelliSOURCE enables Gulf Power to send near-real-time price signals to the appliances, which automatically respond by using the pre-programmed settings, Comverge adds.

"Reaching this important milestone is a testament to the ongoing success of the Energy Select program," says David Eggart, Gulf Power’s program manager of Energy Select. "We have worked closely with Comverge on the Energy Select program for the last 12 years, and the customer satisfaction and operational results we have achieved are remarkable.”
