OPA selects Rodan as a province-wide conservation aggregation operator

    TORONTO, Feb. 1 /CNW/ - Rodan Energy & Metering Solutions Inc. (Rodan)
has been awarded a province-wide contract for the operation and maintenance of
a program to help Ontario's residential and small commercial customers reduce
electricity consumption during periods of high demand.
    The Ontario Power Authority (OPA) selected Rodan to work with local
distribution companies to operate and manage multiple load control systems in
support of Ontario's peaksaver(R) program. The peaksaver program allows local
electricity utilities to install a mechanism in eligible homes and small
businesses which permits the utility to briefly cycle down the central air
conditioning and water heaters during critical peak-use periods - typically on
weekday afternoons during the hottest days of the summer.
    An aggregation operator provides the technical and operating capacity to
efficiently "bring together" electricity users who want to reduce their power
    "As a leading provider of demand response solutions, Rodan is pleased to
leverage its world-class Network Operation Centre to support the OPA and
Ontario's LDCs by operating a reliable multi-system DR platform," said Paul
Grod, Rodan's President. "Under our enerShift(TM) brand, Rodan is delivering a
full suite of demand response and energy management solutions to each major
consumer segment in Ontario."
    "One of the OPA's important mandates is capacity building in the
conservation sector," said Paul Shervill, Vice President of Conservation and
Sector Development. "Rodan is certainly a private sector leader in enabling
these forward thinking solutions"
