Demand Response Signup in PJM (Mid-Atlantic/Midwest)

April 15, 2015 By Josh Kessler

Demand response signup is open until the middle of May in the PJM Interconnection region, an area that covers the Mid-Atlantic and part of the Midwest. According to the Ohio Manufacturing Association, Ohio customers located in the FirstEnergy service territory can receive incentives of $1,000 per 100 kW, while those in the Duke, AEP and DP&L territories can receive $450 per 100 kW. Manufacturers who participate typically take an approach that either (1) curtails energy-intensive manufacturing activities when needed or (2) involves reducing usage of non-critical systems like HVAC and lighting.

Customers interested in participating should consider reading PJM’s fact sheet titled “Retail Electricity Consumer Opportunities for Demand Response in PJM’s Wholesale Markets.” PJM also released its most recent monthly Demand Response Activity Report on April 10, which includes monthly data on demand response payments and deployment across the region.
