FERC Issues Declaratory Order, Rejects the Joint Statement by PJM and Its Market Monitor, and Affirms Existing PJM Rules

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - March 4, 2011) - EnerNOC, Inc. (NASDAQ: ENOC), the leading provider of demand response to commercial, institutional, and industrial customers, today announced that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has addressed EnerNOC's Petition for Declaratory Order filed on February 22, 2011. FERC's Order resolves the uncertainty created by the February 4, 2011 Joint Statement issued by PJM and its Market Monitor, and upholds existing PJM market rules.

In its Order, FERC stated, "We will not consider the issuance of the Joint Statement in any of our considerations regarding market manipulation, and will treat it as if it were never issued. In this fashion, market participants will be placed in exactly the same situation that they were prior to the Joint Statement." FERC further clarified that it currently "does not intend to institute any enforcement actions against [market participants] for registering customers in good faith and settling under the [Guaranteed Load Drop] baseline methodology," and that "[g]ood faith participation in the PJM load management programs, including accurate customer [Guaranteed Load Drop] registration and aggregation during emergency events, is permitted."

"EnerNOC is pleased that the Commission has delivered a swift order to bring clarity to this issue for the upcoming delivery year. We continue to assert that a customer's compensation for demand response should be based on actual, verified load reduction, consistent with PJM's existing market rules, and should not be limited by the customer's demand for electricity in the prior year," said David Brewster, President of EnerNOC.

Throughout these proceedings, EnerNOC has worked to protect its customers and all ratepayers by supporting market rules and due process that promote PJM market integrity, efficiency, and reliability. FERC's order upholds the proposition that the appropriate forum for policy deliberations is the PJM stakeholder process and ultimately FERC itself.
