Demand Response (DR) has evolved into a competitive market-based resource. Annually, Rodan bids its contributors into the IESO’s DR Auction and pays them for their availability and participation throughout the year.
All DR opportunities begin with a free assessment of your facility to create a plan that maximizes revenues that suits your needs.
Rodan competitively bids your DR supply into the DR auction in December of each year.
Once bids are successful in the auction, participation begins starting May 1. After each auction, participants can enter either from May 1 to October 31 for the summer period or enter in the winter from November 1 to April 30 or enter for both seasons.
On activation days, a
standby notice is issued by
9 AM. You will receive an activation notice no later than 1.5 hours before the curtailment window.
You will be paid for having your committed load available for DR. Prices are defined in the auction held each year.
What is Required?
- Load must be available
- Approximately 8-16 hours of curtailment annually
- Curtail for at least 4 hours at a time
- Available during DR program hours
