Energy Curtailment Specialists Inc. (ECS), a Buffalo, N.Y.-based demand response provider, has been approved to enroll businesses in the Base Interruptible Program (BIP) commissioned by Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E).

Participants enrolled in the BIP are given a 30-minute advanced notice to reduce their electricity. ECS says it intends to limit the number of participants it adds to the BIP and will treat interested participants on a first-come, first-served basis.

"With this approval to market the BIP program alongside the other PowerPay! Programs we have been offering for more than five years, ECS is now in the enviable position of having multiple options for a commercial or industrial facility - something for everyone,” says Jim Korczykowski, ECS president and CEO.
