Verizon enables Constellation Energy to offer customers online energy management

Basking Ridge, N.J., February 2, 2011 — Constellation Energy’s commercial and industrial customers can now manage their energy consumption online — and thus better control their energy costs — as the result of a communications solution provided by the company and powered by Verizon’s high-performance IP-based network.

Constellation Energy’s new customer-access portal, NewEnergy Online, and demand response application, VirtuWatt, enable customers to view their energy consumption information round-the-clock, from any location with Internet access.

In addition, Verizon is providing Constellation Energy with a variety of other products and services to enable the Baltimore-based company to increase efficiency and better connect its employees.

“By working with Verizon, we are able to offer a new generation of energy management solutions,” said Mark Huston, managing director of retail energy for Constellation Energy. “The reliability and speed of Verizon’s network enables our customers to have instant mobile access to our online portal, providing them with visibility to their energy consumption to make economic decisions from virtually anywhere at any time.

Verizon’s IP-based multiprotocol label switching network also provides secure data sharing across locations and departments. Verizon’s IP Trunking has helped unify Constellation Energy’s communications infrastructure and efficiently support collaboration across the enterprise.

Through Verizon Wireless service to smartphones, Constellation Energy’s workers in the field can access the company’s data and systems to make faster decisions, use business applications, and communicate with other employees, improving service in both everyday and emergency situations.

“The power company of the future is going to look a lot different from the power company of today,” said Rilck Noel, vice president of Verizon’s Global Energy & Management Practice. “Power companies will be able to provide enterprises and consumers with visibility and control of their energy consumption. Our growing relationship with Constellation showcases how this is becoming a reality, and how energy and technology industries can work together to create a new generation of cost-saving energy management solutions for customers.”
