New York City, April 1, 2011 — GreenHouse Holdings, Inc., a provider of energy efficiency solutions, has announced a partnership with EnergyConnect, Inc., a forerunner in the development of smart grid demand response services and technologies.
Together, the companies will offer customers integrated energy management and automated demand response (Auto-DR) services.
Under the terms of the agreement, GreenHouse will offer its Auto-DR services to EnergyConnect's customers, and EnergyConnect will market its products to Greenhouse's customer base.
This partnership will allow both companies to expand their customer base and offer a comprehensive, integrated demand response solution to existing customers. Customers will benefit from increased energy savings and earnings along with higher consistency in performance.
Auto-DR offers participants the technical means to automatically reduce electricity consumption when signaled by the utility during costly peak energy periods when the demand is highest. This program provides customers with complete control of actual curtailment measures implemented on an event-by-event basis and enables them to realize significant financial benefits.
GreenHouse is a service provider of Southern California Edison's Auto-DR program, providing site assessment, feasibility studies, project development, engineering and installation of enabling technologies, including complete processing of all utility documents.
EnergyConnect's integrated demand response platform enables participants to earn capacity payments for agreeing to shift or reduce power consumption during times of peak demand.
