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 Company (SCE) service territory, and (2) for SCE Bundled Service customers who wish to participate in Third-Party DR Service within the SCE service territory through a Non-Utility Demand Response Provider (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 Service retail customers to participate in 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.
