What is Demand Management?
Demand Management programs offer incentives to companies who voluntarily reduce electricity consumption during peak demands on the power grid. Participation is cost-free and risk free and not only can decrease your energy bill, but will improve your companies’ commitment to sustainability and efficiency.
How It Works
Instead of producing more energy, local end-users who voluntarily participate in the program are asked to reduce their energy consumption for a brief period of time. By reducing the demand instead of increasing supply for this brief period of time, the grid saves a substantial amount of money annually, which is then distributed to the program participants.
On top of savings, deciding to participate in Demand Response programs offers a variety of environmental benefits including cutting back energy usage and reducing reliance on Fossil Fuel power plants. There is no cost and no risk to those who choose to participate in Demand Management programs, making it a win-win for all.
