Benefits of participating in Demand Response
Reduced Energy Costs
Demand Response can reduce your overall energy spend and payments go straight to your bottom line. Participants in the program receive a cheque twice a year. Demand Response creates a dependable, tangible cash flow for you.
Help the Province
Demand Response is activated during times when the grid is undergoing severe stress. By participating in the program, you are helping the province maintain reliable electricity for the places that might need it most, for example, hospitals or senior care homes.

Reduce GHG Emissions
DR reduces the output from dirtier 'Peaker Plants', reducing the provincial grid's overall emissions. Participation also reduces the need for new power plants to be built.
