Energy reduction initiatives are one of the most exciting advances in the energy industry. Demand response is one popular program that has emerged in the past decade.
What is Demand Response?
This simple program protects the electric grid and reduces consumption during peak hours. By responding to a demand response event, qualified businesses can generate revenue on payments from the ISO (Independent Systems Operator) for reducing their load, which protects the transmission grid and reduces carbon emissions.
Commercial property owners can capitalize on demand response programs in two ways:
- The program helps to reduce your energy consumption and control your company’s everyday energy costs, which means that your business will have a smaller carbon footprint.
- Earn money by reducing consumption at strategic times when energy demand exceeds the supply (these payments can equal tens of thousands of dollars in some areas).
When a blackout, brownout, or energy crisis is imminent, our consultants call on participants to reduce their consumption and free up local supplies, thus protecting the grid when demand can’t be met. This is a last defense, but it is also a chance for businesses to become energy superheroes who help keep the lights on and the air conditioner running while doing something great for the environment. Demand response is a mutually beneficial system that helps business owners, protects the earth, and fortifies the power grid.
Demand Response programs are available free of charge to most qualifying facilities. A NJGEC consultant can perform a free electric bill analysis to determine if your facility qualifies.
