Remember the good ol’ days when demand response in PJM was a summer-only commitment?

With CPower, they’re back. 

As of May 2020, Capacity Performance (CP) is now PJM’s lone capacity demand response program, and it requires year-round participation per PJM rules.

CPower has for years been one of the largest aggregators of capacity in the PJM market, which means we have one of the largest capacity portfolios in the market.

Given CPower’s large portfolio and significant positions in PJM’s capacity market, we are able to offer a unique summer-only option to this program. That means your organization CAN participate in CP demand response during the summer only–just like back in the old days.



Here’s how it works. 

Your organization commits its summer load and CPower matches it with an existing winter load from our PJM capacity portfolio. 

Combined, your summer load and the matching winter load make a complete CP offering.

You only participate during the summer months (June-October, and then the following May) and get paid for your efforts in helping PJM’s grid stay reliable.  

Summer-only registration is limited, so contact us today!

How much could your organization earn?

Example: If you participate in Summer-Only CP and have a site in PSEG and one in PECO, both with 1 MW of curtailable summer load, you could potentially earn $67,350.

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