Your businesses can get paid for saving energy

CPS Energy is seeking help from San Antonio companies, schools and industry to relieve pressure on the Texas electric grid during the upcoming peak demand period, better known as the HOT TEXAS SUMMER.

CPS Energy is looking for new customers to enroll in its commercial demand response program, which is a voluntary electric load reducing program for commercial and industrial customers. Companies that help reduce electric demand are eligible for rebates — in other words, they get paid for saving energy.

Demand response is an integral part of CPS Energy’s strategy to save 771 megawatts by 2020.  Learn how your business, school or institution can enroll.

Companies enrolled in the program say the generous rebate checks are a great incentive. The energy saving changes are unnoticeable to building users and visitors.

Last fall, CPS Energy paid $336,845 to five local school districts, colleges and universities for using less electricity!

Demand response season begins June 1 and ends September 30. Events typically occur on weekdays between 3 p.m. and 6:30 p.m., however customers must be available to curtail power between 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. Demand response customers receive a two-hour advanced notification of when to start and end curtailments.
