EnerNOC, Inc. has extended its demand response contract with the Tampa Electric Co., the principal subsidiary of TECO Energy, Inc., for five years through 2016. Pursuant to the terms of the agreement, EnerNOC will provide a total of up to 40 MW of firm, dispatchable demand response capacity to the Florida utility through its Networked Demand Response program. This resource will help Tampa Electric meet a portion of its conservation goals while also ensuring reliable and efficient service throughout its territory. This contract is effective immediately and is not subject to additional regulatory approval.
“Over the past several years, Tampa Electric has invested in a number of demand-side management programs to support our commitment to conservation. During that time, we have found commercial and industrial demand response to be a highly reliable resource that is available when we need it,” said Bruce Narzissenfeld, VP Customer Care/Fuels Management at Tampa Electric. “From the beginning of our partnership, the EnerNOC team has offered superior customer service, and this program is very well-liked by our customers.”
EnerNOC operates demand response programs in open markets throughout the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom and maintains bilateral agreements with utilities such as the Tennessee Valley Authority, Tucson Electric Power, Salt River Project, Public Service Company of New Mexico, and Xcel Energy. As of December 31, 2010, EnerNOC had more than 5,300 MW under management across 8,600 sites.
