Comverge, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based demand response and energy efficiency solutions for electric utilities, today announced a new contract with Entergy Arkansas to deploy a bring your own device (BYOD) demand response pilot. Comverge will aggregate consumer-purchased Wi-Fi-enabled smart thermostats to evaluate a potential new demand response resource for Entergy Arkansas, Inc.

The BYOD pilot will complement the Comverge and Entergy Arkansas Summer Advantage residential demand response program.

"As the leader in mass market demand response, Comverge is excited to work with Entergy Arkansas to add consumer-purchased smart and Wi-Fi-enabled thermostats to its portfolio of demand response resources," said Dave Neal, Chief Operating Officer, Comverge. "The new BYOD demand response pilot enables Entergy Arkansas to better engage customers with Wi-Fi thermostats, while also creating a potential new source of capacity."

Entergy Arkansas will utilize the Comverge IntelliSOURCE-Connect software to coordinate and communicate with the consumer-purchased devices. IntelliSOURCE-Connect is completely integrated with the Comverge IntelliSOURCE Enterprise demand response management system to give Entergy Arkansas a single platform for managing both the existing direct load control program and the BYOD pilot.

Entergy Arkansas provides electricity to more than 705,000 customers in 63 counties across the state of Arkansas. It is a subsidiary of Entergy Corporation, which is an integrated energy company engaged primarily in electric power production and retail distribution operations.
