Progress Energy Florida is planning on deploying Comverge Inc.'s IntelliSOURCE Demand Response Management System (DRMS) as it shifts its EnergyWise Home residential demand-side management program to two-way communications.

IntelliSOURCE will centrally control more than 500,000 energy management devices - representing 700 MW - from multiple manufacturers that will be deployed throughout Florida. Progress Energy Florida will also use IntelliSOURCE to automate and manage the workflow required to install all 500,000 devices.

"We are excited to provide IntelliSOURCE as the software platform that helps the company migrate and deploy its next-generation program that includes two-way communications between the utility and the consumer," says Blake Young, president and CEO of Comverge.

Progress Energy Florida provides electricity and related services to more than 1.6 million customers.
