Demand Response Programs
Demand Response (DR) programs help reduce energy costs and can also help system integrity for a few critical hours during the year. If you can control loads in your facility, you may want to enter into the forward capacity market through a demand response provider. These programs encourage facility managers to lower energy use during certain key conditions:
- Tight power supply
- Local distribution equipment approaching capacity limits
- When wholesale power supply prices are expected to exceed $100 per mWh
To assist you in identifying ways to participate
- Contact your account manager
