Presentation Coming Soon

Learn why Central Hudson Gas & Electric's Peak Perks Program was recognized as a Program Pacesetter in the 14th PLMA Awards.

In response to New York’s Reforming the Energy Vision (REV) initiative, Central Hudson is coordinating a demand response program into its electric transmission and distribution planning to offset anticipated peak load growth in three distinct zones. This will enable Central Hudson to defer new infrastructure projects in each of the three zones, reducing future bill pressure for customers and creating an additional earnings opportunity for the company.

The program targets all customer classes with offerings that include residential direct load control equipment using two-way communicating Wi-Fi thermostats and load control switches, a customer engagement portal, as well as customized curtailment agreements for Commercial & Industrial customers. Comverge's IntelliSOURCE cloud-based software provides the foundation for the program, and the utility also uses Comverge services for participant recruitment as well as program administration and support.

In six months, Central Hudson achieved more than 30% participation of eligible customers within the targeted zone with the most timely capacity need. Central Hudson also exceeded the total first-year MW target for all three zones, achieving 5.9 MW of load reduction versus a target of 5.3 MW.

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