Vermont Joins EnerNOC Pool

The State of Vermont has joined the New England “demand-response pool” managed by Boston-based EnerNOC, meaning that EnerNOC will be able to dial back power usage at state office buildings and other facilities during times of peak electrical demand on regional power utilities. “Demand response is a solution that makes good business sense while delivering positive community and environmental benefits through increased efficiency and reliability of the electric power system,” said Gerry Myers, Vermont’s Commissioner of Buildings & General Services, said in a company statement released today. EnerNOC signed up the State of Rhode Island for its demand-response pool in July.
