SAN ANTONIO – “Consert is proud to support the American Heart Association and the impact the organization has here in San Antonio,” said Consert CEO and President Jack Roberts. “The American Heart Association’s programs are critical to serving community needs and improving lives.”
The American Heart Association’s Heart of Gold Gala is held annually to raise funds for research and educational outreach about heart disease. The mission of the American Heart Association is to build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
Consert converts electric consumption in homes and small businesses into cost-effective, clean sources of capacity and energy reserves for utilities. The Consert load management solution is based on real-time, wireless technology which allows participants to conserve energy using a web-based, home area network. Consert utilizes the Verizon Wireless 3G and 4G LTE networks to provide real-time communication to the Consert data center.

Since Consert relocated its headquarters and senior leadership team to San Antonio last year, the company has supported local community initiatives and events.
Consert signed an agreement with San Antonio-based CPS Energy, the largest municipally owned energy company in the nation providing both gas and electricity, which will result in the reduction of 250 megawatts of peak demand over the next three years using Consert’s Virtual Peak PlantTM software. Consert also will create more than 150 new jobs in San Antonio over the next few years.
