CPower Appoints JP Harper VP National Accounts, GM California Market
BALTIMORE, September 21, 2017, –CPower Energy Management, a national leader in demand-side energy management solutions, has appointed JP Harper to lead its national sales and California market teams.
“Our executive team set out to find an executive leader to be highly focused on the fast-growing California market and our national customer accounts that extend across multiple open energy markets,” said Glenn Bogarde, CPower’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “We are very excited to bring JP on to fill this new executive position. His experience and qualifications make him uniquely qualified to lead the company’s expansion in these markets.”
With more than 20 years of experience, Mr. Harper is a proven energy industry executive with a deep understanding of demand response, demand management, energy efficiency, energy storage, and distributed energy resources. Before joining CPower, Mr. Harper served as Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Business Development for CLEAResult, working with electric and gas utilities to provide turn-key solutions and consulting services within the energy efficiency and demand response space. Prior to CLEAResult, JP served in leadership roles at both EnerNOC (now Enel) and Structure Consulting Group (now Accenture).
“No two deregulated wholesale energy markets are exactly alike,” Mr. Harper said. “Companies with a presence in multiple deregulated electricity markets, like big box retailers and REITs, face the challenge of understanding each market’s programs, rules, and regulations. With CPower’s expertise in all of the wholesale electricity markets, we are strongly positioned to best help them develop successful energy strategies, regardless of location.
“Many of our national accounts have locations in the California market. And the California Independent System Operator (CAISO) is often on the energy frontier for developing new types of energy products,” Mr. Harper said. “By adding our growing portfolio of demand management solutions, including intelligent storage, to our demand response offering, we are able to help all organizations best address the unique challenges of this energy bellwether state.”
