Norcross, Ga., January 4, 2012 — Comverge, Inc., subject to approval by the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission, it has been selected by PECO Energy Co. for two programs in 2012 to deliver more than 65 MW of reduced electricity demand to C&I sites throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania.
Comverge won 50 MW in PECO's demand response program, which is designed to achieve demand reductions from eligible C&I customers during the utility's top 100 peak hours. The goal of the program is to achieve PECO energy savings targets as set forth in Pennsylvania Act 129.
Comverge will recruit C&I customers in PECO's service territory to fulfill its contracted MW reductions. Comverge anticipates that program participants will primarily include existing PECO customers that are participating in similar PJM Interconnection programs.
Comverge has also been awarded 16.5 MW in PECO's Distributed Energy Resources program, which targets PECO C&I customers who either have existing backup generation resources or are interested in installing other types of distributed generation systems with an emphasis on clean generation sources. For this program, Comverge plans to use new and existing PECO customers under contract in the PJM market.
