** GRHU recently reported that PepsiCo(NYSE:R) will partner with GreenHouse to utilize Southern California Edison’s (SCE) Automated Demand Response (Auto-DR) program at its Buena Park bottling plant.

GRHU is a qualified service provider of SCE’s Auto-DR program, providing site assessment, feasibility studies, project development, engineering, installation of enabling technologies and complete processing of all incentives.

The Auto-DR program offers significant financial incentives and technical support to SCE customers with automated load control systems that participate in demand response events. Auto-DR uses control systems to automatically achieve specified energy demand reductions (kW and duration) during periods of peak energy demand.

In utilizing the Auto-DR system, Pepsi can shed or reduce electric consumption during costly peak energy periods when the demand is highest. In addition, the system provides Pepsi the ability to reduce operating costs by curtailing the use and purchase of electricity. Pepsi will then receive financial incentives from SCE for doing so.
