Con Edison’s demand response programs pay over 800 participating customers who are able to temporarily reduce electric usage when requested by Con Edison. Con Edison has demand response programs available to commercial, industrial and residential customers. A participating customer can possibly earn up to $50,000 over a three year period for every 100 kW of load relief provided.
Customers can enroll in the 2 Hour or Less Notification Program (Distribution Load Relief Program) and upon request reduce their electric usage to help maintain system reliability in their communities.
Customers can enroll in the 21 Hour Notification Program (Commercial System Relief Program) and upon request provide load relief for Con Edison on the hottest days.
For more information on the programs, continue to the Demand Response Details page.
