Customized Energy Solutions Honored in 2022 American Business Awards for Innovative Frequency Regulation Project

April 28, 2022 / News & Updates, Press Release

PHILADELPHIA, PA – April 28, 2022 – Customized Energy Solutions (CES) has been awarded a Bronze Stevie® Award in the Energy Industry Innovation of the Year category of The 20th Annual American Business Awards® for the critical behind-the-scenes role it played in enabling a first-of-its-kind residential frequency regulation program in New England.

The frequency regulation program allows households with Tesla Powerwalls to share stored energy with regional grid operator ISO-New England (ISO-NE) to keep a steady, regulated flow of energy on the grid, a critical function for regional system safety and reliability for customers. To make this type of program possible, massive amounts of data must be transmitted between the energy supplier, Tesla, and ISO-NE within seconds to properly respond to real time market signals. These key integrations between all three parties had never been attempted in the U.S. prior to this project and were enabled by CES’s software and consulting services.

“Improving the energy grid’s resilience is top of mind for grid operators, government officials, and residents. We’re honored to play an enabling role in an innovative project that unlocked a new way to add resilience and stability to the grid, while also benefiting participating households through reduced power supply costs,” said Craig Tropea, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at CES. “We look forward to enabling many more advanced energy projects in the future.”

The Stevie American Business Awards recognize the achievements and positive contributions of organizations and working professionals in the United States. The 2022 awards program received more than 3,700 nominations from organizations of all sizes and industry.

Awards will be presented at a gala ceremony on Monday, June 13 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York. Details about The American Business Awards and the list of 2022 Stevie winners are available at
