Con Edison's Demand Response programs pay over 800 participating customers to temporarily reduce electric usage when requested by Con Edison. Participating customers can earn up to $18,000 each year for every 100 kW of load relief provided.

Commercial and residential customers can enroll in the 2 Hour or Less Notification Program (Distribution Load Relief Program). Upon request, participants reduce their electric usage to help maintain system reliability in their communities.

Customers can enroll in the 21 Hour Notification Program (Commercial System Relief Program). Participants temporarily reduce electric usage on the hottest days.

For more information on the programs, continue to the Demand Response Details page.
