If your business can reduce its energy usage between 4pm to 9pm, enrolling in the Emergency Load Reduction Program (ELRP) could earn you incentives.
ELRP allows customers with monthly demands of 100 kW or greater to earn incentives, without penalty, for reducing electricity demand during grid emergencies.
ELRP events can occur when the California Independent System Operator (CAISO) issues an alert, warning, or emergency. SCE will notify participants the day before or day of an event, and in case of emergency, the same day reduction is needed.
Event hours are between 4 pm and 9 pm, any day of the week including holidays, between May 1 and October 31. An event will last a minimum of one hour to a maximum of five hours.
Customers submit a one-time kW reduction bid at the time of enrollment. Customers are encouraged to review their historical usage to determine an achievable bid amount.
