By signing up for our DR Capacity Program, our customers’ facilities become a Demand Resource (DR) for the grid operator or utility to call on when the grid is in jeopardy. Customer participation will help keep the power on and prevent blackouts in the region. Payments are made whether or not an event is called for being an available standby resource. The grid operator or utility pays IPKeys Power Partners to register and manage an aggregated portfolio of Demand Response and we share those payments with our customers. Performance is based on either (1) achieving the committed load drop (KW) or (2) dropping usage to a fixed level (KW). Customer sites may be aggregated in the same zone, subject to local rules. Payment levels and program rules vary by region.
