Smart Usage Rewards for Reducing Demand
You can find other technical details in the Rider T tariff.
About the Incentive
During peak hours of the summer, we’ll pay you to reduce your energy use temporarily through Smart Usage Rewards. By curbing your electric usage during high-demand periods, you’ll help maintain system reliability in your community.
You can participate in Smart Usage Rewards (Demand Response) by enrolling in our easy programs that alert you to reduce your usage in advance.
- 21 Hour Notifications - Commercial System Relief Program (CSRP)
- 2 Hour or Less Notifications - Distribution Load Relief Program (DLRP)
You can enroll in one or both of our programs through a participating aggregator. If you can enroll 50 kW or more in our programs, you can enroll directly with Con Edison.
Reservation Payment Option
When you enroll in the Reservation Payment option, you’ll receive monthly payments based on the amount of kW you’ve pledged to reduce upon request, plus additional payments for actual kWh reduced. You’ll receive payments regardless of whether Con Edison requests to reduce electrical usage. Different parts of the city have different needs; as a result, our programs pay different rates for load relief in different networks and boroughs.
