Watt’s Up With Backup Generators?

September 30, 2020

Simplifying back-up generation rules, permitting, and demand response participation.

  • Renewables are here and continue to displace traditional coal resources on the grid. Battery storage is compelling and becoming more cost-effective — but it is still not a full-proof, scalable solution. Utilities are battling the challenges of grid intermittency amidst infrastructure challenges to support renewable penetration. All of this to say, the tried-and-true back-up generator is still the go-to resource when it comes to energy resilience and still remains a misunderstood energy resource.

    Join CPower’s back up generation and demand response experts Arusyak Ghukasyan and Michael Mindell for this 30-minute panel to learn and understand topics including:

  • How generators can earn revenue for your organization
  • The rules and policies for BUGs at the federal, state, and local level
  • Common myths about using BUGs for ‘non-emergency’ situations like demand response and testing under load
  • What industries, markets, and programs are more favorable to BUGs for revenue
  • How to fund and finance generator upgrades or replacements
