Demand response: National Grid to help businesses save $3.6bn

National Grid’s new demand response programme claims to help business customers save thousands of dollars in electricity.

US electricity and natural gas delivery company National Grid has put into place the first demand response programme for its business customers offering them the chance to reduce their electricity bills and at the same time, make money. 

The utility, serving nearly 7m customers in New York, Massachusetts and Rhode Island, is incentivising energy business customers to become more energy efficient in their operations. 

The two-year pilot, launched in late January of this year, could see commercial participants receive up to $3,500 in incentives for reducing electricity consumption during peak consumption times. The energy savings made from this pilot is expected to power over 20,000 homes. Full article HERE.
