How demand response works
Energy users get paid by grid operators, utilities, to conserve or shift electricity use in response to grid signals. These signals can be triggered by 1) a lack of energy supply (from heat waves, storms, downed power plants, renewable energy variability), 2) high prices, 3) high emissions on the grid, or other reasons.

Energy users get paid by grid operators, utilities, or virtual power plants to conserve or shift electricity use in response to grid signals. These signals can be triggered by 1) a lack of energy supply (from heat waves, storms, downed power plants, renewable energy variability), 2) high prices, 3) high emissions on the grid, or other reasons.
Conserving or shifting energy in demand response programs has the same value as producing energy.
Grid operators and utilities value demand response for its stabilizing impact on the grid. By reducing how much energy is used or shifting energy use during times of grid stress, customers are able to earn cash.
Voltus partners with its customers to meet our commitments to grid operators and utilities. Although customers are expected to perform in demand response dispatches, there are zero penalties for underperformance.
There is zero cost or risk to participate in demand response programs with Voltus.
