Receive incentives for managing and reducing energy use during periods of peak electricity demand.

Demand-related costs can account for 30 to 70 percent of the total electricity cost in a monthly energy bill.

Through our ConnectedSolutions Demand Response Program, your business will utilize demand response tools (energy storage, advanced controls, and active monitoring) to help you manage electricity use.

During times of peak demand, you receive incentives for lowering usage—reducing emissions and creating less stress on the utility grid.
