How Does CPower Help Virginia?
CPower has helped Virginia facilities earn nearly $23 million by participating in demand response and energy efficiency.
Who’s helping Virginia earn revenue and help ensure a reliable grid for our communities? You are. Schools, universities, cities, and public works departments all participate in PJM’s emergency capacity program through load curtailment, energy efficiency, projects, or both.
“Demand response has been good business for the division. We’ve been able to help the grid at their busiest times, earn some money, and we use the curtailment test as an opportunity to test some of our critical systems. By being able to find problems in controlled situations, we have prevented them from happening in emergencies. It’s been a win all the way around for us from a business, maintenance, and conservation standpoint.” – Jim Morris, Assistant Director, Environmental and Energy Management, Virginia Beach Public Schools
By the Numbers
Since 2017, nearly $23 million has been earned by Virginia facilities participating in Demand Response & Energy Efficiency.
