Aclara To Deploy Integrated Consumer Engagement And Demand Response Solutions At Fort Collins Utilities

ST. LOUIS, Sept. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Aclara ®, a leader in intelligent infrastructure technologies for utilities and part of the Utility Solutions Group of ESCO Technologies Inc. (NYSE:ESE), today announces a contract with the City of Fort Collins Utilities to deploy an integrated consumer engagement and demand response solution. The comprehensive system will share a single software platform, allowing Fort Collins and its customers to proactively manage energy use while capitalizing on conservation, demand response programs and in-home technologies.

"We see strong synergy between consumer engagement and demand response," said Steve Catanach, light and power operations manager for Ft. Collins Utilities. "We selected Aclara because of its ability to provide both elements in a single platform as well as for its industry leadership." Aclara shares in our vision and will partner with us to deliver a solution that allows our customers to take a more active role in managing consumption, demand and associated costs."   

This initiative is an important component of Fort Collins' advanced meter project, which comprises approximately 65,000 electric and 34,000 water meters. Aclara's solutions will provide valuable information and education tools for Fort Collins Utilities' customers.

"We envisioned a tightly integrated and consistent approach to consumer engagement and demand response, and put together a low-risk, affordable solution with fast rollout capability," said Brad Kitterman, president of Aclara. "We see this project as the first of many that takes full advantage of this advanced solution."

As part of the project, Fort Collins Utilities will deploy Aclara's Demand Response Management System (DRMS), powered by Calico. The DRMS is a robust demand-response platform that provides a single point of analysis and control for comprehensive management of multiple demand-response programs. The DRMS' centralized dashboard is a unified operations center for program management, load forecasting, event dispatch, messaging management, baseline calculation and post-event management.
