Client Testimonials

“Northeastern REMC needed a way to reduce rapidly increasing capacity and transmission costs. So we turned to Virtual Peaker because of the ability to control multiple thermostat devices. As a result, we’ve seen an increase in load shed and reduced costs during peak demand times due to homeowners’ participation in our Peak Thermostat Program.”

– Christopher Todd, Director of Marketing and Communications, Northeastern REMC

“We’re owned by the members we serve, so we’re always looking for ways to bring value to their connected homes,” “Our partnership with Virtual Peaker leverages the company’s advanced demand response capabilities so that we can continue to deliver excellent service and innovative energy solutions.”

– Mario Zavala, Community Engagement Coordinator, CoServ

“I think we’re now more formal in how we go about program development as a result of working with Virtual Peaker. They helped us put a structure around the steps that have to happen for us to get up and running. We need there to be device integration, we need to make sure that the billing all works. Before, we were a little bit loose. And I think having them to be a check on us, means that we’re a little more operational in how we work.”

– Graham Turk, Innovation Strategist, Green Mountain Power
