Learn why Portland General Electric (PGE) & AutoGrid Systems were recognized as Program Pacesetters in the 14th PLMA Awards  for their joint efforts on the utility's Pricing and Peak Time Rebate Program.

As part of their smart grid strategy, PGE is leveraging the AutoGrid Flex SaaS technology platform to deploy and evaluate the relative effectiveness of 12 pilot programs. These programs are engaging more than 10,000 residential customers with behavioral demand response opportunities and/or dynamic rates.

Assisted by CLEAResult, PGE is using the project to determine which programs and pricing structures are most effective at engaging customers and delivering reliable load sheds. During the summer and winter of 2016, PGE deployed 14 DR events that achieved an average of 1.1 MW of load shed per event across all 12 programs.

PGE will use the result of the pilot to extend the best program designs and rate structures to all qualified customers in 2019. When fully rolled out, the program is expected to lead to at least 30 MW of peak load reduction.

Plan to join PLMA for a dialogue with these industry thought leaders.

Who Should Attend.
Utility and regulatory staff as well as other energy industry trade allies and organizations seeking thought leadership and insight on innovative demand response methods to meet peak energy load needs, mitigate price, and manage variable generation.
