Demand response (DR) is designed to reduce the use of electricity in response to power grid needs and economic signals from a competitive wholesale market.

  • End-use consumers realize value by reducing their electricity uses during an emergency event or during the high locational marginal price (LMP)
  • End-use consumers can not participate directly into ISO’s DR programs. They have to use curtailment service providers (CSPs), who act as agents between ISOs and customers
  • TEG works with its CSP partners to enroll its clients in the DR programs (emergency, economic or both)
