Capacity services payments

Uncover how you get paid

With demand response capacity services payments, customers get paid to be on standby to conserve energy if there’s a grid emergency.

These payments are meant to compensate the customer for their commitment to reduce energy consumption, even if an event is never called.

Energy services payments

Uncover how you get paid

With demand response energy services payments, customers get paid to conserve or shift electricity use when there’s an actual grid emergency.

By doing so, customers are actively helping to prevent grid shut offs and blackouts which can have a catastrophic impact on local communities.

Ancillary services payments

Uncover how you get paid

With demand response ancillary services payments, customers get paid to conserve or shift electricity use for short periods of time to offset temporary grid imbalances.

By doing so, customers are supporting greater grid stability.

Demand charge avoidance programs

Uncover how you save

With demand charge avoidance programs, customers save on their annual electricity bill by avoiding electricity use during times of high demand.

Avoiding these charges can reduce annual electricity spend by up to 70%!

Price spike avoidance and payments

Uncover how you get paid

With price spike avoidance and payments, customers earn cash by reducing energy consumption when prices get too high.

Customers can also avoid volatile prices during grid emergencies resulting in additional cash savings.

Carbon emissions reduction payments

Uncover how you get paid

With Carbon Response, customers get paid for energy reductions during times of high-intensity carbon emissions on the grid - this is a first-of-its-kind program funded by Meta. Voltus customizes participation to operational needs, tracks localized emissions intensity on the grid, dispatches sites, measures emissions reductions, and gets customers paid.

Real-time energy data

Uncover how you save

With real-time energy data, customers earn more cash by having instant visibility into load reduction during events.

Customers that frequently view their energy data are 50% more likely to perform well. Customers save an estimated additional 10% on electricity bills by having 30-second interval data at their fingertips.
