MISO Demand Response Programs in Ameren, Illinois
Offset rising capacity prices by earning revenue for using less energy, achieve your ESG goals, and help make your community more sustainable. CPower can show you how to do it all with demand response.
In April 2022, MISO announced capacity shortfalls across of the northern portion of territory, resulting from both generation retirements and increasing peak demand which caused capacity pricing to spike.
As a result, greater reliance on imports from neighboring regions and emergency operations will be needed to maintain reliability in the face of potential power shortages.
While not all customers may be exposed to these high prices, participation in MISO’s demand response programs can help organizations offset them while providing MISO with the resources necessary to maintain reliable grid operations.

What is Demand Response?
Sometimes, the demand for energy outpaces the grid’s ability to supply it, causing brownouts or blackouts.
Instead of producing more energy at great expense to consumers and the environment, the grid operator can offset the imbalance by reducing the amount of electricity being consumed when demand exceeds supply.
That’s demand response, and it can be very financially rewarding for organizations like yours.
