Special Case Resource
Earn revenue and help New York’s grid evolve into the future with demand response.
The Special Case Resource Program (ICAP/SCR) is a reliability-based demand response program offered by the NYISO. During periods of increased demand, or when the grid is affected by unplanned events like inclement weather, Special Case Resource participants earn revenue for reducing their electricity consumption.
When your organization participates in the SCR program, you can earn revenue, assist with grid reliability, preserve the environment, and help keep energy prices stable in New York.
Your CPower team is with you every step of the way and can help you earn even more revenue by participating in other New York demand-side energy management programs.
- CPower provides team of energy experts who works with you to develop and fine tune an energy management strategy that suits your specific needs.
- When the New York grid is stressed, you’re notified and curtail your load according to your curtailment strategy.
- Your organization gets paid for using less energy. You get paid whether the NYISO calls an event or not.
- Your CPower team is with you every step of the way and can help you earn even more revenue by participation in other NY demand response programs.
Earn back what you’ve put in
As part of the New York State Public Service Commission – Clean Energy Standard (CES) – Zero Emission Credit (ZEC) program issued in 2016 to maintain nuclear power plants, your organization is now paying a new mandatory energy tax added to your electric utility bill. Participating in the demand response programs is a great way to offset this new mandated CES tax and earn back what you’ve already paid in…and then some.
