PJM Capacity Performance

Earn revenue for being available
to use less energy on short notice when the grid is stressed.

When the demand for electricity exceeds the grid’s ability to supply it, the region faces the possibility of brownouts and blackouts.

PJM’s Capacity Performance program helps maintain year-round grid reliability by reducing demand through curtailment events. Organizations that participate in the Capacity Performance program can earn money for being available to use less energy when the grid is stressed.


Your CPower team is with you every step of the way and can help you earn even more revenue by participating in other PJM demand response programs. 

PJM Capacity Performance Snapshot

Participants commit to a fixed level of consumption (“Firm Service Level” or FSL), and will not consume more than that amount of electricity during an event. Events tend to happen on hot summer afternoons or cold winter mornings, and last 4 hours on average. CPower is enabling customers to enroll with different values for the summer and winter seasons. We will work with you to maximize your ability to participate and assess any additional opportunities.
