HENDERSON, NV--(Marketwired - September 18, 2015) - Blue Earth, Inc. (BBLU), an alternative/renewable power generation services company, announced today that its Blue Earth Generator (BEGEN) division has begun offering services to assist customers looking to participate in the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) and Consolidated Edison's (ConEd) Demand Response (DR) enablement program.
The DR Enablement program provides incentives to offset the cost of equipment or software upgrades that enables automated participation in the New York Independent System Operator (NYISO) Installed Capacity (ICAP) Special Case Resources (SCR) Program. "We believe that our new DR offering is a great addition to our capabilities to serve customers," said Bob Powell, CEO of Blue Earth, Inc.
