As a result of a competitive bidding process conducted by Southern California Edison (SCE), Energy Curtailment Specialists Inc. (ECS) has been awarded a direct contract to expand its demand response (DR) service offerings across the SCE service territory. ECS says it has paid over $150 million to participants in its PowerPay! program throughout the course of the past 12 years.

"Over and above the attractive payments, many businesses are taking advantage of the PowerPay! program because they are serious about reducing their carbon footprint and increasing grid stability within their community," says Jeffrey Bonerb, ECS’ senior program manager.

ECS anticipates needing to limit the number of participants it adds to its program for 2013 and will treat interested participants on a first-come, first-served basis.
