You Can Benefit From Temporarily Reducing Energy Usage

Could your business benefit from getting paid to use less energy? Can your business occasionally reduce its electricity demand for at least a four-hour stretch? Con Edison’s Emergency Demand Response Program (EDRP) pays eligible business customers to temporarily cut back energy use during power shortages or other emergencies. We’ll even throw in our Demand Monitoring Software free of charge to make it easy for you.

    Benefits & Incentives Eligibility & Requirements

    • Participants must be willing and able to reduce their electric load by at least 100kW for at least four hours
    • Dual enrollment in other capacity based programs is not allowed
    • A Billing Interval Meter is required

    Program Details

    Con Edison offers business customers their choice of two programs activated by the New York Independent System Operator (NYISO). Both the Installed Capacity Program and the Emergency Demand Response Program seek to reduce demand during power shortages or other emergencies.
