DEMAND RESPONSE & BACKUP GENERATION

The cost of delivering electricity to your facility makes up about 40% of your monthly energy bill. Demand Response programs give you the ability to mitigate delivery costs and/or receive payments by curtailing your usage during peak demand events. Texas Energy Exchange will review your usage information and work with our experts to formulate a plan that gives you the maximum benefit without disrupting your operations. 

Demand Response Programs

4 Coincident Peak (4CP)-  Every year, during the 4 summer months (June, July, August, and September) the Transmission and Delivery Service Provider (TDSP) that services your area will mark the 15 minute interval in which the system reached its peak demand in each month. They will then set your 4CP delivery charges for the next year based on your demand during those 4 intervals. By predicting when those events will occur, our experts can alert you to curtail your usage during that time to reduce your 4CP charges in the following year. Annual Savings: $50,000 per MW 

Have you considered what would happen to your business in the event of an extended blackout? 

If you are a large energy user, power outages could have a devastating financial impact on your operations. Backup generation is a great solution to protect large users from the operational liability of power outages and grid failures. 

Backup Generation

Installing backup generation gives you the ability to enroll your entire load into Demand Response programs with no impact on your operations. When a Demand Response event is called, instead of curtailing usage the generator will kick on seamlessly and supply you with power to continue operations as normal. You will be using little to no energy from the grid during this time, but your energy needs will be fully covered by the generator. Most of the time demand response revenues will far exceed the cost of financing backup generation, so you will receive a strong positive cash flow from the investment. The NPV calculations of this investment, as well as the benefit of protection against power outages, makes this option extremely attractive.
