We all have to work together to avoid major brownouts and blackouts. Energy demand is ever-increasing, but the NRG Demand Response Program, offered by our sister company, allows you to help keep the grid stable and earn valuable cash payments or bill credits by lowering your power consumption during specific time periods when the grid is under stress.
Utilities and regulatory commissions across the continent are setting goals to increase energy supplies from renewable resources and decrease reliance on costly power plants, and demand response has become an increasingly important component of electrical system planning in North America.
When businesses lower their energy usage during peak hours, the grid has a chance to stabilize. This way, electricity can continue to flow reliably with a much lower risk of major power fluctuations. Our program asks the consumer to stand ready as a last line of defense in case of a major electrical crisis. In return, consumers are paid for their efforts based on the kilowatt-hours they saved during the peak usage period. Participation is risk-free and entails no out-of-pocket expenses.
We're leading a movement that's changing the way the world thinks about energy, and we want you to be a part of it. If you would like to participate in the NRG Demand Response Program, call us at 1-877-711-5453, and an NRG account executive will work with you to develop an agreement that works for your business and will explain how the bill credits or cash payments are calculated.
