Commercial ConnectedSolutions Offerings

Receive incentives for decreasing energy use at the right times.
Receive incentives for managing and reducing energy use during periods of peak electricity demand.

Through our ConnectedSolutions Active Demand Reduction initiative (often called Demand Response), your business will utilize tools and approaches (advanced controls, energy storage, and active monitoring) to help you reduce electricity use during peak times.

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

  1. Contact a Curtailment Service Provider to determine your potential for reducing electricity use at peak times, and develop a curtailment plan.*
