Wake Electric cited for environmental efforts
Wake Electric and Consert, Inc., a provider of energy management technology for residences and small businesses, recently received an environmental award from the city of Raleigh.
In 2009, Wake Electric and Consert completed an eight-month, smart grid technology pilot program that achieved such goals as improved demand forecasting and management of peak loads while helping Wake Electric's members become more energy efficient. The pilot program moved to commercialization under its new name, the Monitor & Manage Program.
Raleigh created The Raleigh Environmental Awards to recognize outstanding work in sustainable development and environmental stewardship. The program awards individuals and organizations that have demonstrated a commitment to the environment.
