Boston-based EnerNOC Inc. says it has expanded its demand response presence in northern California, securing the opportunity to grow its megawatts in the region by over 50% through 2015. EnerNOC won the additional megawatts through a competitive bidding process; EnerNOC's share comprised nearly 45% of the total megawatts awarded.

This program is administered by Pacific Gas & Electric and funded by California utility customers under the auspices of the California Public Utilities Commission. The contract has received public utility commission approval.

EnerNOC, which provides its Utility Solutions implementation and consulting services to utilities, grid operators and power distributors, says it is the largest third-party provider of demand response resources in California. Commercial, institutional and industrial participants in EnerNOC's demand response network receive access to EnerNOC's DemandSMART application, which helps improve demand response curtailment, maximize demand response payments, and improve visibility into real-time energy consumption, the company adds.

"We have a long-standing, successful history helping utilities in California address their demand-side management objectives, while delivering substantial value to their commercial, institutional and industrial energy users," says Tim Healy, chairman and CEO of EnerNOC. "The fact that this new contract expands the services we're providing in the region is a testament to the value that demand response provides to the resource mix in northern California."
