Could your business benefit from getting paid to use less energy? Can your business occasionally reduce its electricity demand? Con Edison will pay you to reduce your energy demand whenever the day-ahead forecast exceeds 96% of the forecasted summer system-wide peak—the more you conserve, the more you earn. Con Edison’s Commercial System Relief Program (CSRP) pays eligible business customers to temporarily cut back energy use during high demand periods in order to reduce peak-day generator emissions, delay installation of costly utility equipment, and reduce the purchase of expensive peak-day energy. We’ll even throw in our Demand Customer Care for Energy Management website free of charge to make it easy for you.
- Reduces air pollution
- Delays need for costly system upgrades
Eligibility & Requirements
There are two ways to participate in CSRP: Summer Reservation System Relief Payments (for customers who guarantee pledged load reductions) and Voluntary System Relief. Summer Reservation System Relief Payments are only available between May 1st and October 31st, and participants will receive monthly payments for their commitment in addition to payment for energy reductions during a power curtailment event. Customers who participate in Voluntary System Relief, will receive payments for the energy reductions made during an event. Performance during a power curtailment event is measured using Con Edison’s Customer Baseline Load procedure
To sign up for Con Edison’s Commercial System Relief Program just fill out either the Individual or Demand Response Service Provider application form.
