"We're famous for our weather extremes here in Texas -- it may be freezing in the Panhandle while we're wearing shorts on our sunny coastline," said Texas Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson. "That means our grid has to be ready for frequent and sometimes unpredictable peaks in demand. So we're particularly excited about Acclaim's new technology by helping to protect the Texas electric grid and drive revenue for participants."

"We are very excited about the opportunity to collaborate with the General Land Office (GLO) on this important energy management initiative. Texas has a growing demand for electricity spurred by the State's strong economy, and reliability is central to continued growth," said John Elder, Acclaim Energy Advisors CEO. "The DLO365sm solution Powered by AT&T has been embraced by many government entities, and we believe it will have a profound impact for those looking to mitigate risk, generate revenue and protect its communities from potential brownouts and blackouts."

By working with the GLO and Acclaim Energy Advisors, state agencies will be able to capture superior value and manage energy risk more effectively. DLO365sm will enable them to participate in load curtailment programs, operate multiple units with a single command within 10 seconds and upgrade software on devices in the field remotely. This new M2M technology was developed by Acclaim and AT&T.
