Tucson Electric Power (TEP) has extended and expanded its EnerNOC Demand Resource contract for up to 45 MW of demand response capacity through 2020. TEP provides power to about 413,000 customers in the Tucson area
In addition to system operations, demand response capacity helps TEP achieve goals pursuant to Arizona’s Energy Efficiency Standard, which requires electric utilities to increase energy savings each year through customer-funded energy efficiency programs until the cumulative usage reduction reaches 22 percent by 2020.
EnerNOC and TEP have partnered since 2010 to implement a demand response program for TEP’s commercial and industrial customers, and will continue to work closely on customer recruitment. EnerNOC Demand Resource is a capacity-based agreement that provides utilities an assured level of load reduction delivered by EnerNOC on a turnkey, fully outsourced basis.
