CPower Acquires Leading Energy Efficiency Measurement Firm
BALTIMORE, July 7, 2017
CPower announced today that it has acquired eCap Network, a leading provider of energy efficiency measurement and verification services in the PJM market. The purchase is part of CPower’s ongoing efforts to expand its demand-side management services nationwide.
Already one of the largest providers of demand response to commercial and industrial organizations in the US, CPower is deepening its commitment to energy management capabilities by enhancing its energy efficiency expertise through the acquisition of eCap.
eCap has a strong reputation for helping customers monetize their energy efficiency projects in PJM and was an early market entrant in the energy efficiency measurement and verification niche.
John Horton, CPower’s President and CEO, believes the acquisition will help CPower provide its customers with an opportunity to create more value from their energy efficiency projects as the PJM market evolves to meet the grid’s reliability needs of the future.
“eCap specializes in qualifying and capitalizing energy efficiency projects in PJM’s complex markets,” Mr. Horton said. “eCap’s team has years of experience and, like CPower, is committed to helping customers achieve and exceed their energy management goals. We’re thrilled to have their expertise in-house to complement our extensive demand-side management product offering.”
The changing nature of PJM’s Reliability Pricing Model favors capacity offerings from both demand response and energy efficiency resources. With the acquisition of eCap, CPower is in prime strategic position to help their customers earn revenue with both.

BALTIMORE, Md. (Jan 18, 2016) –
CPower, a leading provider of demand-side energy management services to commercial and industrial customers, today announced it has been selected by FirstEnergy’s (NYSE: FE) Pennsylvania utilities to provide PA Act 129 demand response services during peak hours in the Met-Ed, Penn Power and West Penn Power service areas.
“CPower is excited to provide demand-side resources to help Pennsylvania’s forward-thinking utilities meet the state’s aggressive energy reduction goals and support grid reliability,” said Glenn Bogarde, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, CPower. “We will deliver the best possible solutions for FirstEnergy’s Pennsylvania utilities, working with new and existing commercial and industrial customers to optimize overall energy savings and earnings.”
Demand response programs reward electricity users for reducing consumption when alerted by a utility or independent system operators (ISO) such as PJM Interconnection, the grid operator that services 13 states and the District of Columbia. Those reductions improve the performance of the regional electric grid, particularly during hot summer months or deep winter chills when energy usage increases. Participants are compensated based on how much electric load they commit to curtail when notified by the utility about a peak demand event during periods of potential grid stress conditions.
