  • Script:“Because there is no storage of electricity, we build power plants and transmission lines to meet the peak demand. However, the grid peaks rarely so we only use 90% or greater of system capacity 1% of the entire year --- 80 hours or less. That’s incredibly expensive. Furthermore, the system is complicated and prices fluctuate significantly. End users can help to meet these challenges by participating in demand response programs.”
  • Script: “There are many benefits to demand response participation:Payments: EnerNOC has paid out over $200M of demand response payments to customers. Customers earn anywhere from a few thousand to over a million dollars per year depending on the amount of demand they can reduce.”Protect Your Community: Blackouts are extremely expensive for the local community and its economy. By doing your part, you keep the lights on for everyone.Preserve the Environment: During times of peak demand, the oldest and dirtiest power plants are activated; demand response makes that less likely. Also, blackouts cause disruptions that are often environmentally damaging, such as overflows from waster water treatment plants.”Protect Your Operation: Prior to a blackout, voltage on the grid is often reduced. This can damage sensitive and expensive motors. Also, the sudden interruption of a blackout can disrupt the flow of work and equipment. It’s all about getting the heads-up so you can be prepared and making it less likely that the blackout will actually occur.”
