May 2, 2016 – Rodan Energy Solutions announced it has been selected by the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) as the Ontario-wide “aggregation operator & dispatch administrator” to operate the peaksaverPlus Demand Response Program for Ontario’s Local Distribution Companies (LDCs). As the incumbent aggregation operator, Rodan Energy says it will continue to dispatch, support and manage approximately 320,000 load control devices currently enrolled in the residential and small commercial peaksaverPlus Program.

“Rodan Energy is pleased to leverage its Network Operation Centre to support the IESO and Ontario’s LDCs,” said Paul Grod, Rodan Energy’s president. “Our residential DR offering maximizes consumer choice by enabling multiple DR technologies to enroll onto Rodan’s EnerVu platform.”

The dispatch administrator responsibilities include coordinating communication with the IESO and participating LDC operators with respect to demand response activations.

To-date, the program has delivered approximately 160MW in energy savings in Ontario, according to Rodan.
