IESO offers Demand Response Pilot Program contracts
July 9, 2015
The IESO has finished its review of submissions for the Demand Response (DR) Pilot Program RFP and has selected 20 projects to provide up to 80 megawatts (MW) of DR capacity in total. The projects will receive a two-year contract and have a target in-service date of May 2016.
As part of broader efforts to integrate DR into the market, the IESO will use this Pilot to test the capability of DR resources to provide load following service. For more information about the Pilot, please visit Demand Response Pilot webpage. Further details will be provided once the contracts are finalized later this summer.
