Have you heard of Demand Response, but aren't sure what it is? Do you want to get paid to cut your peak electricity demand just a few times per year (but maybe none at all)? Our partner EnerNOC, a national leader in Demand Response, offers a service that pays large electricity customers for providing demand response capacity. Your organization might be ideally suited to participate in this popular program.
Demand Response enables organizations to earn quarterly payments by agreeing to be ready to curtail electric power or switch to backup generators when the grid is under stress or electricity prices are unusually high.
When this occurs, the sponsoring utility or grid operator may initiate a demand response event by contacting you a day in advance. Customers then curtail their electrical use during a few designated hours of the day, and EnerNOC real-time meters ensure that the curtailment commitment has been met.
EnerNOC’s Demand Response offering is called DemandSMART. Participating in DemandSMART can earn you significant dollars just by agreeing to be ready to reduce your energy. Besides developing a new source of revenue, you'll benefit the environment by helping to delay or eliminate the need to build new power plants.
These organizations earn payments just by being ready to curtail electric power:
