Kennett Square, Pa.-based Comverge Inc., a provider of smart grid, demand management and energy efficiency solutions, has partnered with the Pennsylvania Department of General Services to service the demand-response pilot program being conducted by the commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Comverge won a competitive bid to determine a demand-response partner for selected commonwealth government buildings.

Under the agreement, Comverge will provide a turnkey implementation program for demand-response services, including load curtailment opportunity identification, program education, registration, notification, compliance, settlement functions and, where applicable, metering and integration within PJM Interconnection.

"This partnership will be a key element in the movement toward smart grid reliability and sustainability that will benefit all those residing or doing business within the commonwealth of Pennsylvania," says George Hunt, senior vice president of sales at Comverge.

Comverge began the pilot program with four participating commonwealth facilities this year. Should this program be deemed successful, all Pennsylvania government buildings, including hospitals, educational and correctional facilities, will have the opportunity to participate in the various demand-response programs offered by PJM through this partnership between Comverge and the commonwealth.
