Acclaim Energy Advisors a provider of energy management solutions formed a 6-year strategic agreement to provide DLO365 to government agencies and facilities in Texas.
According to Acclaim Energy Advisors, this will reduce utility costs, protect sensitive equipment from power surges, help restore reliability to the Texas power grid and generate revenue for participating government agencies.
"We're famous for our weather extremes here in Texas — it may be freezing in the Panhandle while we're wearing shorts on our sunny coastline," said Texas Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson. "That means our grid has to be ready for frequent and sometimes unpredictable peaks in demand. So we're particularly excited about Acclaim's new technology by helping to protect the Texas electric grid and drive revenue for participants."
By working with the GLO and Acclaim Energy Advisors, state agencies will be able to capture superior value and manage energy risk more effectively. DLO365s will enable them to participate in load curtailment programs, operate multiple units with a single command within 10 seconds and upgrade software on devices in the field remotely. This M2M technology was developed by Acclaim and AT&T.
