Voltus Secures Up to 120 MWs of Demand Response With National Grid

Boston, Massachusetts

Voltus, Inc. announced today that it is one of the vendors recently selected to deliver a commercial and industrial demand response program with National Grid for up to 120 MWs of demand response from commercial, institutional, and industrial customers in Massachusetts and Rhode Island over the next three years.

These utility agreements mark Voltus’s latest partnerships to help utilities meet regulatory requirements, increase customer satisfaction, and ensure grid security while putting more financial incentives and technology on the table to drive customer participation in demand response.

“Utilities are eager to work with partners who deliver proven expertise in their field and innovation to customers in areas like demand response,” said Gregg Dixon, CEO of Voltus. “In just the past two years we’ve secured relationships with more than a dozen major US and Canadian utilities to help them get more from demand response while helping them increase their J.D. Power customer satisfaction scores.”

“New England saw active demand response participation in the ISO-NE programs peak at nearly 2,000 MWs in 2011 which has since declined to less than 400 MWs,” said Laura Corso, Director of Utility Sales at Voltus. “These new utility programs offer a great financial opportunity to experienced demand response practitioners, most of whom dropped out of the ISO-NE market years ago.”

With the addition of the National Grid program to Voltus’s CashDash demand response planning app, customers now have more than 140 demand response programs to choose from globally. These new programs offer between $35,000 per MW-year and more than $170,000 per MW-year in value for eligible customers.
