SunPower Corp. has signed a three-year agreement with EnerNOC to provide commercial and industrial customers with tools that will allow them to monitor the impact of their solar energy investments and help save energy.
Under the agreement, EnerNOC will exclusively offer SunPower solar solutions to its enterprise customer base, and SunPower will exclusively offer EnerNOC’s energy intelligence software to its commercial and industrial solar customers in the US and Canada. As part of the agreement, SunPower will start deploying EnerNOC’s SaaS (software as a service) solution bundled with solar to its existing enterprise and institutional customers.
“SunPower is focused on offering Smart Energy solar solutions to allow our customers to intelligently manage energy supply and demand, and achieve their energy goals,” said Tom Werner, SunPower president and CEO. “With EnerNOC’s energy intelligence software, our customers will get energy and demand management analytics integrated with real-time SunPower solar production and performance.
“This will allow them to better budget and manage their energy bills, including shifting usage to mitigate demand charges, which may comprise 30 percent or more of a monthly energy bill. Our two companies will work together to continuously evolve these services and offer customers best-in-class solar technology coupled with industry-leading energy intelligence and management.”
“More and more enterprises want to take control of their energy costs and, as a result, the demand for solar has dramatically increased. The declining price of commercial solar – a 45% drop since 2012 – has made it even more attractive, as evidenced by the more than doubling of installations by leading Fortune 100 companies in the past three years,” said Tim Healy, chairman and CEO of EnerNOC. “Solar solutions require robust analytics and verification capabilities to maximize their value, which is why we’re excited to partner with SunPower in North America to offer an integrated solution to enterprise customers.”
