“Johns Manville has been a strong supporter of energy-efficient solutions that keep costs low and support the economy. This program is an excellent opportunity to continue that commitment,” said Gary Groner, Director, Global Energy at Johns Manville. “EnerNOC’s technology allows us to contribute capacity automatically, and we appreciate the ability to adjust our curtailment levels over time.”
The Alberta Electric System Operator designed the Load Shed Service for Imports Program (LSSi) to support higher electricity import levels on its interconnection with British Columbia. After a thorough proposal review process, AESO selected several load entities to participate in LSSi; however, EnerNOC is the only demand response provider in the program that aggregates Alberta businesses into a limited resource for AESO. EnerNOC provides all necessary hardware, manages dispatches, and compensates businesses for their participation. It also offers its award-winning DemandSMART demand response application to participants at no cost, so that they may manage their performance in real time.
“For manufacturers like Johns Manville, this program offers significant participation payments, making it an excellent way to offset electricity costs while maintaining operational continuity for the manufacturer and the grid,” said Kelly Lorincz, Director of International Business Development at EnerNOC. “EnerNOC not only ensures that the grid gets the right amount of load when it’s needed but also protects its customers from risk if they need to adjust their participation level through our DemandSMART software, at any time.”
“Utilities and grid operators have launched dozens of AutoDR pilots, but they want a resource that can deliver results today,” said Tim Healy, Chairman and CEO of EnerNOC. “That’s what EnerNOC is providing for AESO, and businesses like Johns Manville are reaping the economic benefits of this full-scale AutoDR program.”
