EnerNOC Signs up Rhode Island

Boston-based EnerNOC, which pays organizations to join “demand response” pools whose members agree to cut back on power usage during times of peak electrical demand, said today that it has added a major new partner: the State of Rhode Island. Under a five-year contract, EnerNOC will add city, town, and government-related buildings in Rhode Island to its demand response pool for the New England region. “As Rhode Island is facing skyrocketing energy costs and consumers are being asked to pay more for electricity, reducing non-essential consumption is an important component of our commitment to support reliable, cost-effective and environmentally sustainable energy solutions,” Rhode Island Governor Donald L. Carcieiri said in a statement about the agreement.
