Happy New Year! Now let’s get to work on our resolution: help you double your dollars in demand response in 2018 through these five steps:
- "Stack" multiple demand response programs. If you're only in one program, you're missing out.
- Take advantage of "out-of-market" demand response. This alone can double the value you get from curtailing load.
- Get back your backup generator. The opportunity to use your generator in demand response programs has returned.
- Negotiate the "gross up." If your current demand response provider hasn't told you about the gross-up, find a new demand response provider. This will increase your earnings 10% to 30% per year.
- Optimize your enrolled kW. DR works off of a simple formula: kW x $'s = earnings. Squeeze every kW you can by reevaluating your operational flexibility and enrollment levels.
