Demand Response Programs at EBCE
EBCE executed a demand response pilot program during summer 2018, paying out over $100,000 to commercial customers that cut demand during peak periods. The program was modeled on PG&E’s Peak Day Pricing, where customers respond to day-ahead notifications of hours of expected high demand. Cutting demand at those peak times helps with grid stability and reduces costs for all customers, not just those who respond. EBCE is expanding the program in 2019 to customers on A10, E19, and E20 rate schedules. EBCE customers may also participate in 3rd party demand response programs.
