Summer starts precisely on June 21st at 12:57 GMT in the morning and you can certainly tell, especially if you live in the Boston metro area where temperatures were hovering in the mid 90s on Fathers Day. My gut is telling me that peak energy usage is expected this year but no telling what may happen as the weather is quite unpredictable these days. So what is one to do? Well the team at EnerNoc located in Boston has come up with what I feel is a very novel solution called demand response which is the ability to shut down some electrical use in times of peak demand to even out electricity flow and avoid blackouts. I like to call it Service Oriented Energy. Using their technology solution, companies can wind down electrical usage and take a piece of the coin as an incentive to help energy companies level their peak energy demands. Definitely worth taking a look at www.enernoc.com if you are a business who likes to slow your electrical consumption down and get a reward.
