Comverge to expand Pepco demand response program

The new agreement builds on that success and will see the Comverge IntelliSOURCE software platform automating all key components of the new programs including customer acquisition, device installation and call center services

Norcross, Ga., June 27, 2012 — Comverge, Inc., announced an expanded agreement with Pepco Holdings Inc. that will see the Comverge IntelliSOURCE platform supporting about 300,000 customer endpoints for PHI.

Under the terms of the amended agreement, Comverge will help expand the PHI Energy Wise Rewards demand response program to three new markets by providing end-to-end program support for 50,000 new program participants. This will include targeting residential customers in the District of Columbia, and small businesses and master metered accounts in Maryland.

Comverge began working with PHI, one of the largest energy delivery companies in the Mid-Atlantic region and country with nearly 2 million customers, in 2009 and has already successfully deployed more than 150,000 energy management devices in PHI's service territory.

The new agreement builds on that success and will see the Comverge IntelliSOURCE software platform automating all key components of the new programs including customer acquisition, device installation and call center services.

PHI's Energy Wise Rewards program enables its customers to take more control over their energy usage, save money on their energy costs, and take a big step towards a more sustainable lifestyle.

During the summer "peak demand" times, Energy Wise Rewards works to reduce electricity use by "cycling" central air conditioners off for short time periods throughout the region, averting power outages, and reducing the need for costly, new electrical infrastructure.

Comverge now works with PHI to deploy its Energy Wise Rewards program in all of its subsidiaries including Delmarva Power and Light, Pepco Washington, DC, Pepco Suburban Maryland, and Atlantic City and Light.
