IESO DEMAND RESPONSE PROGRAM

The IESO Capacity Based Demand Response Program encourages qualifying facilities to guarantee short term power demand reductions during peak periods. Generally these peak periods are in July and August, between 11:00 am and 5:00 pm, when air conditioning loads are at their maximum. This saving is accomplished by shutting off discretionary power loads for fixed amounts of time. Registered facilities are rewarded for this commitment with upfront standby incentives for their commitment to release the set amount of power and additional incentives when IESO calls for that power to be released.

Autani Wireless Retrofit Building Controls

Autani Wireless Retrofit Building Controls allows buildings to automate and control all of building’s power loads and devices which helps them to reduce overall power consumption. Autani technology also enables participation in IESO’s Capacity Based Demand Response program by giving management control over each power consuming device, so that when a power demand is made by IESO, the facility manager can immediately shut off  specific power consuming devices including a lighting zone, a set of fans or a large HVAC unit for a specified period and then assists the building manager to calculate the power savings made so that they can confirm that they have met their demand reduction commitments.
