Save money with the
Capacity Bidding Program

Make a monthly pledge to reduce your energy use and save. When electric supplies are expected to be low, we’ll call on you to reduce your consumption by the amount you pledged at the beginning of the previous month. If your pledge goal is met, you’ll receive an incentive for performance on top of your monthly pledge incentive.

Capacity Bidding Program (CBP) is managed by aggregators and operates with two options:

  • Day-Ahead Option: You get notification to reduce energy 3 P.M. the day prior to the event
  • Day-Of Option:  You get notification to reduce energy two hours prior to event  

The program runs May 1 through October 31, but is promoted year-round. Even with numerous aggregators already participating in CBP, enrollment is open for new aggregators.

Each aggregator is responsible for customer acquisition, marketing sales, retention, support and event notification tactics.
