Energy Central, Comverge, Gulf Power and Tampa Electric to Host Webcast on Benefits of Dynamic Pricing

NORCROSS, Ga., Oct. 1, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Comverge, Inc., the leading provider of Intelligent Energy Management solutions for Residential and Commercial & Industrial (C&I) customers, announced today an upcoming webcast, "Benefits of Dynamic Pricing: Two Utility Case Studies." Hosted by Energy Central, the webcast will take place on Wednesday, October 3, from 12:00 p.m. – 12:45 p.m. ET. This webcast follows the recent announcement of Comverge SmartPrice™, an intelligent dynamic pricing solution.

Utilities are increasingly turning to dynamic pricing programs to help shave peak demand, improve engagement with their customers and better align the cost of producing electricity with the price the end-user pays. However, program types can vary from: Time-Of-Use (TOU), Critical Peak Pricing (CPP), Real-Time Pricing (RTP), Peak-Time Rebate (PTR), among others. In the webcast, Comverge will be joined by its customers Gulf Power and Tampa Electric to share best practices for deploying a dynamic pricing program and to discuss the different options available to utilities. These programs can lead to increased customer engagement and satisfaction, better management of electricity prices and reduced generation needs.
