Whom is This Information For?

This information is intended (1) for entities who wish to take part in Third-Party Demand Response Service (Third-Party DR Service) within the Southern California Edison (SCE) service territory, and (2) for SCE bundled customers who wish to participate in Third-Party DR Service within the SCE service territory through a Non-Utility DRP other than SCE.

What is Third-Party DR Service?

Third-Party DR Service is offered by SCE in connection with markets run by the California Independent System Operator (CAISO), and allows Non-Utility DRPs or SCE bundled retail customers to participate or “bid-in” directly into the CAISO wholesale energy market for compensation by the CAISO in accordance with the market awards and dispatch instructions established by the CAISO.

Third-Party DR Service is subject to the terms and conditions, including dual participation rules, under SCE’s California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) approved Rule 24.

Getting Started

Requirements and Instructions

Non-Utility DRPs enrolling bundled service customers must satisfy a complete fulfilment of SCE, CPUC, and CAISO regulatory requirements before the Non-Utility DRP can provide Third-Party DR Services in SCE’s service territory.

Online Authorization Process

The Online authorization process is a Customer Information Service Request (CISR) that is in place to fulfill customer-authorized disclosures of data to Non-Utility DRPs. It provides the necessary customer information to Non-Utility DRPs in order to facilitate customer participation in CAISO’s markets.

Please contact your SCE advisor on how a DRP can revoke access to customer data.
