NetX Demand Response and 4CP Programs - On-Demand Energy Savings

Everybody is experiencing the pain of rising energy prices. According to the DOE Office of Electricity, “Demand Response provides an opportunity for consumers to play a significant role in the operation of the electric grid by reducing or shifting their electricity usage during peak periods in response to time-based rates or other forms of financial incentives.” Electric providers reward consumers using Demand Response with energy credits or cash rebates that reduce their overall utility costs. One challenge is the limited time window available to react to utility demand response notifications. Learn how Network Thermostat lets you take advantage of these rebates simply and efficiently.

It’s common for these units to be controlled with simple programmable thermostats that teachers and staff can leave running continuously at occupied setpoints, further exacerbating the energy usage in these buildings.
