Get Paid to Use Less Energy During Power Curtailment Events
Could your business benefit from getting paid to lower its energy cost? Can your business occasionally reduce its electricity demand? Con Edison’s Distribution Load Relief Program (DLRP) pays eligible business customers to temporarily cut back energy use during power curtailment events in order to ensure reliable service throughout our power-delivery system. We’ll even throw in our Customer Care for Energy Management website free of charge to make it easy
- Helps maintain reliable power-delivery service
- Reduces need for costly system upgrades
- Con Edison will pay you to reduce your energy demand during curtailment events—the more you conserve, the more you earn. See the Comparison Guide for details.
Eligibility & Requirements
- Con Edison business customers willing to reduce electricity use during a power curtailment event by at least 50 kW directly or through a NYISO registered demand response service provider with a combined load of at least 100kW
- Participants must have a Billing Interval Meter
There are two ways to participate in DLRP: Summer Reservation Payments (for customers who guarantee pledged load reductions) and Voluntary Load Relief. Summer Reservation 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 Load Relief, which is available throughout the year, 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 Distribution Load Relief Program just fill out either the Individual or Demand Response Service Provider application form.
