NRG Energy Inc. has acquired Buffalo, N.Y.-based private electricity demand response provider Energy Curtailment Specialists (ECS). NRG Energy says ECS currently manages more than 2,000 MW of demand response across the country for over 5,000 customers.
‘Acquiring Energy Curtailment Specialists' demand response and other solutions allows us to [continue] to help our customers reduce their electricity demand when that reduction is critical to maintaining the electrical grid,’ says Jim Steffes, president of NRG's Northeast regional retail business.
ECS' headquarters will remain in Buffalo. Terms of the transaction are not being disclosed.
