Demand response programs are designed to enable customers to contribute to energy load reduction during times of peak demand. Most demand response programs also offer financial incentives for load reduction during times of peak demand.
Storms, heat waves, and periodic power plant repairs and maintenance have the potential to affect supply and demand for electricity. When demand is high and supply is short, power interruptions can sometimes be the result.
Demand response programs are a fiscally and environmentally responsible way for a building to respond to occasional and temporary peak demand periods. The programs offer incentives to customers that volunteer and participate by temporarily reducing their electricity use when demand could outpace supply.
Our energy specialists can help you determine if a demand response program makes sense for your property.
