OKLAHOMA CITY, OK — Automated Energy, Inc. (AEI), has signed a multi-year exclusive agreement with Computer Process Controls, Inc. (CPC), a climate control technology division of Emerson Electric Co. The agreement allows CPC to sell and market AEI solutions to its nationwide grocery and convenience store customer network.

According to Automated Energy, the agreement will enhance one of the nation’s largest grocery and convenience store building controls networks employed by CPC. It allows CPC customers to Web-enable their energy management strategies, aggregate facilities in any configuration, get data on individual equipment, and get a macro view of its energy usage. To date, CPC has deployed Automated Energy Solutions throughout five grocery store chains nationwide.

“For a leading control company like CPC to see the value we bring is a great validation for AEI and our technology,” said Automated Energy chief executive officer Cody Graves. “We are excited to be working with a company that has the vision to offer their customers an enterprise view of their energy consumption providing new solution options and cost savings.”
