Under the terms of the agreement, Comverge will continue to manage the fully outsourced, pay-for-performance demand response program on behalf of Entergy Arkansas. Launched in 2012, the Entergy Arkansas program called Summer Advantage will be supported by an integrated suite of Comverge hardware and software solutions, including the Comverge IntelliSOURCE enterprise software platform and IntelliPEAK load control switches.

Entergy Arkansas extended its contract with Comverge after meeting and exceeding its original enrollment goal of 15 MW by 10 MW.

The second-largest nuclear generator in the United States, Entergy Arkansas owns and operates power plants with approximately 30,000 MW of electric generating capacity.
