NYPA's Peak Load Management (PLM) program is designed to provide system reliability in times of need, and includes a portfolio of demand response options.
These options incorporate the New York Independent System Operator (NYISO)-sponsored programs including the Special Case Resources and Emergency Demand Response programs.
Through participation in demand response programs, you are helping to contribute to the reliability of the New York State electricity grid. In addition, you get paid for your efforts, while also getting the opportunity to review, practice and perfect your emergency response processes with the grid providing back-up.
Facility loads can be curtailed by operating on-site generation or by reducing discretionary usage, or a combination of both.
