FirstEnergy Pennsylvania Selects EnerNOC Demand Response to Reduce Peak Energy Use

DemandSMART Demand Reductions Support the State's Act 129 Energy Reduction Efforts

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - Sep 27, 2011) - EnerNOC, Inc. (NASDAQ: ENOC), the leading provider of demand response applications and services, today announced it will provide demand response resources to Metropolitan Edison Company (Met-Ed), Pennsylvania Electric Company (Penelec), and Pennsylvania Power Company (Penn Power), FirstEnergy's Pennsylvania utilities (NYSE: FE), through May 31, 2012. EnerNOC's DemandSMART™ demand response resources will help the utilities achieve load reduction targets established by Pennsylvania's Act 129. This is the second agreement related to Act 129 that EnerNOC has signed with utilities in Pennsylvania.

"FirstEnergy is committed to meeting the goals of Pennsylvania Act 129," said Doug Elliott, President of Pennsylvania operations for FirstEnergy. "Our demand response program is designed to help customers reduce peak demand and save money."

FirstEnergy's Pennsylvania utilities have created a range of energy efficiency programs designed to reach efficiency mandates set by Pennsylvania's Act 129, including commercial building retrofits, as well as home energy efficiency initiatives. In this demand response program, EnerNOC develops a customized energy reduction plan for each participant and connects each site to its Network Operations Center, at no cost or risk to the electricity user.

When dispatched by FirstEnergy's Pennsylvania utilities, EnerNOC uses its comprehensive demand response application, DemandSMART, to manage each site in real time and ensure that its network achieves the targeted demand reduction. Since finalizing this program in July, Met-Ed, Penelec, and Penn Power have already called upon EnerNOC's network of commercial, institutional and industrial customer sites multiple times to deliver demand response capacity.

"EnerNOC has built a strong network of demand response resources in Pennsylvania. Through programs like these, we can build upon that foundation and help utilities deliver significant, cost-effective energy savings throughout the state," said Tim Healy, Chairman and CEO of EnerNOC. "We are pleased to continue delivering demand-side resources to our utility partners and help their customers experience the bottom-line benefits of better energy management."
