Energy Curtailment Specialists Inc. (ECS) has announced the expansion of its demand response business in California. As a result of a competitive bidding process conducted by Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E), ECS was awarded a contract to expand customer participation in the PG&E service area by 60%.

ECS says it has paid over $150 million to participants in its PowerPay! demand response program throughout the past 12 years and anticipates an allocation of an additional $40 million to PowerPay! participants this coming year. The company adds that it anticipates needing to limit the number of participants it adds to the program for 2013 and will treat interested participants on a first-come, first-serve basis.
