ECS’ PowerPay! Demand Response Program is unique in that it provides several types of payments to the participating business – with NO COST. The money only flows one way – from ECS to you, not vice versa. The types of payments are:

  • Base capacity payment – This is the largest payment and is paid for your standing by if and when a reduction event is called. You are essentially just like a power plant sitting by waiting to help the electric grid if and when it is needed
  • Energy Payment – You are paid for the energy (electric) you reduce during reduction events in the same manner as a power plant supplying electricity to the grid
  • Displaced Energy Savings – You receive 100% of all savings achieved by not using your reduced electricity during the event hours, with ECS taking 0%

Payments are made by check or wire directly from ECS to your business. You can use the money as you wish – it is not merely a credit to your electric bill

What is Demand Response?

On rare occasions the electric grid experiences a high degree of stress (usually in extremely hot weather). In order to reduce the strain on the grid, demand response programs have been developed by utilities and grid operators.

Businesses enrolled in the demand response program PowerPay! for New York City can earn tens of thousands of dollars annually while simultaneously benefiting their community and the electric grid. PowerPay! for New York City is administered by Energy Curtailment Specialists, Inc. (ECS), who has had a direct contract with New York Independent System Operator (NYISO) for over a decade.

Initially, I was very concerned regarding ECS demand response program and how that would impact our productivity goals for the month. I was worried that stated power outtage would not happen as plan and last longer than expected. I am very pleased to report that the power outtages were precisely planned, timed perfectly and actually allowed my site to focus on much needed value added activities during downtime. We are pleased to work with such a reliable, professional company.
